However, for those travelling as a couple and planning a romantic getaway, Porto really is the destination par excellence.
Thinking of a holiday for two, we have compiled some romantic plans that you really have to make when you visit Oporto!
A WALK THROUGH FOZ DO DOURO
Delight yourself with the sea breeze and the unique postcard that is the union between river and sea. The area has several boardwalks, perfect for strolling or biking as a couple.
A PICNIC IN SERRALVES
In what is one of the main contemporary art museums in the country, the Serralves Museum, there is a fascinating meadow and flora. This space, full of magical corners, invites you to take a beautiful walk in communion with nature. As a couple, you can also enjoy a romantic picnic on the lawn, while you enjoy the sunny days and the shade of ancient trees.
ADMIRE THE VIEWS AT CRYSTAL PALACE
The name is misleading, but the Crystal Palace is known for its beautiful gardens and the peacocks that inhabit them. Discover the extensive green spaces on a walk for two and admire the view of the Douro River. If you have time, venture to the Romantic Promenade, which includes the Romantic Museum, located in the same area.
TAKE THE ELECTRIC ROUTE
Very typical and beautiful, the Porto tram also has the added value of passing through some of the most outstanding parishes in the city. Discover the riverbank, the sidewalks of the Batalha area and the Joyful Garden in the company of your loved ones.
VISIT THE PORT WINE CELLARS
We all know that Porto wine is one of the city’s main dishes, internationally recognized. But a visit to the cellars is always an excellent plan, since you can taste the drinks, learn more about the history and the Porto Wine process.
A ROMANTIC DINNER IN RIBEIRA
End the night by the river, with the lights of Ponte D. Luís and the views of del Pilar Mountains? There is nothing more poetic than this. Take advantage of the mild temperatures of Oporto to take a walk through the area, always full of animation.
