The apartment truly has the best view in Porto, no competition. But it's also spacious, funky, with blackboards on the walls to write on, comfortable and well equipped. It's really convenient too for walking over the bridge into town. Miguel is a terrific host, informative...More

Interaction with guests
I live on the same street as the house, Forged by some of history's leading architects, Porto's majestically adorned valleys combine Latin charisma, Baroque flair, and a perculiarly British streak as sweet as the region's Port wine. Here's what to see in one of the world's most charismatic cities! Dom Luis Bridge Gustave Eiffel's Dom Luis Bridge is as spectacular as the views from it. Cross the Duoro to the famous Port wine cellars of Vila Nova de Gaia for sun-soaked panoramas of both cities! Clerigos Tower The highest point in a low city, sailors once used the Clerigos Tower as a guide into the riverfront square. Great views await if you can manage the 240 steps to the top! Porto Cathedral, Palacio da Bolsa (Stock Exchange Palace)
