Unfortunately the weather was against us so we didn't linger too long but it had a nice atmosphere and there were many cafes and eateries nearby. The river was also right in front of the square. It would be great in summer I'm sure.

Lovely square by the riverside. Restaurants and cafes galore. Mad mixture of building styles. Pity about England football supporters.

Fun area that’s hard to miss if you Re anywhere in the riviera area. The constant activity from both locals and everpresent tour groups may be too much fun for some.

This is one of my favorites places in Porto. The views are wonderful and it is a very romantic place. The bars are perfect to have a romantic dinner or to enjoy the good weather with a drink.

A taxi to the airport cost us a fixed price of €25 which is pretty cheap. Relying on public transport when catching a flight is always a bit risky. Our concierge booked the taxi for us.
