A UNESCO World Heritage site and former European Capital of Culture, Portugal’s second-largest city has plenty of interest for visitors, and the scenic Rio Douro and beautifully restored Old Town offer a colorful backdrop for a walking or biking tour. Seeing Porto on foot or by bike is the most efficient way to take in all the sights, and there are seemingly endless options, from themed sightseeing tours to full-day treks.
Those interested in further exploring Porto’s UNESCO-listed historic center can opt for a Porto Old Town Walking Tour or a Downtown Walking or Bike Tour, and discover Porto’s rich history and heritage, which dates back to the Middle Ages. Themed walking tours can also offer insight into the city’s medieval past and old Jewish community, or for design enthusiasts, there’s a Revival Architecture Walking Tour or a Porto Tiles walking Tour, where you can learn more about the city’s famous architecture.
Not so interested in history? Opt for a Porto Shopping Walking Tour and take in the city’s most popular markets and handicrafts stores; indulge in a Food and Wine Tasting tour; or walk or pedal around the city at night.
Adventurous travelers can also explore along the Douro River and Atlantic coast with an Extreme City tour, or challenge themselves to a Full Day Bike Tour, clocking up 35km as they venture to the beaches and villages along Portugal’s North coast.
