Porto (7/14)

List item

Porto is Portugal’s cultural capital, with an amazing riverfront full of stores, eateries, and nightlife. Its rich monuments, nearby seaside towns, and Port wine houses make it a wonderful place to explore. Between the city museums, the shopping, and the sights, it will be a week of exciting new experiences.

In Porto, the Serralves Foundation and Museum helped spur the city’s transformation from a fine wine-producing city to a center of contemporary art and architecture. Numerous galleries now populate the Rua Miguel Bombarda in the city center. In the hot neighborhood, where the Douro River flows into the Atlantic, the Foz do Douro area is rapidly becoming a fashion and design Mecca. The main restaurants and discos along the city’s riverfront are designed by young Portuguese architects.
