Great outdoor market on the weekends!

Very cute outdoor market for souvenir shopping. Lots of great cafes to stop for a coffee or bite to eat.

We spent a long weekend in Porto in October and this was the place where we always went at the end of the day. The area is so nice, so typical that we felt like we were inside a postcard.

Loads of cafes and restaurants. Sometimes a bit of free entertainment too, if it's not raining. Steep walks to and from the centre - good for you.

My European adventures started in Paris and after 2 months of little or no sunshine, I landed in Porto. Here I was peppered with loads of Sunshine, smiling faces and a lovely riverside which wasn't cold. Cais da Ribeira was my first stop and though I came for a walk, I ended up spending over 2 hours, enjoying beer and... More

The riverfront is very touristy but you have to visit it. You'll have to fend off all the restaurant hosts trying to get you to sit at their table, the boat cruise salesman, and the scarf and trinket selling tables. But it's nice to walk along it anyway and see the river and other side with all the wineries. You... More

cafes, restaurants and many colorful houses across this beautiful river. There are little shops too if you are looking for souvenirs. Gets noisy at night. Food at cheap places is much better than fancy restaurants. do visit San Francisco church.
