We did an escorted tour of the theatre. There was just the two of us. The guide spoke perfect English and took us everywhere: the stage , costume area , props and up above the stage. A wonderful tour well worth it.

Teatro Nacional Sao Joao is an ancient building in Batalha Square. Due to time constraint, we have not paid visit to the internal part of the theatre. It is worthwhile to tour around the area while visiting Porto.
