Porto, traditionally romantic and austere, has undergone a profound transformation in recent decades and shows traces of a modern and cosmopolitan city. Discover the “old” Baixa (Downtown): traditional shops, monuments, tiles and typical restaurants, where you can (and should) taste the famous "francesinha". Surprise yourself with the “new” Porto: contemporary architecture, "cool" hotels, signature cuisine and world flavors, the unstoppable "movida" of the Galerias and Cordoaria area, next to the old Torre dos Clérigos. The iconic Ribeira continues to be the postcard and the most tourist spot in the city. The views of the Douro River, the bridges and the Rabelo boats, the colorful houses and the Port Wine cellars, on the other bank, are a World Heritage Site and a must-see.
