Porto Walking Tour
From US$21,47
Overview
Discover the wine capital of Portugal with this immersive city walking tour of Porto. Learn about its extensive history with your tour guide while wandering its ancient curved streets. Visit the UNESCO-listed city center while exploring the Porto Cathedral, Baroque churches, and learn about the process and history of their famous fortified wine.
What to Expect

Meet your guide in Porto’s Sé neighborhood to begin your city walking tour. Delve into the rich history of Porto beginning with ancient Romans and ending with the Moors and the French. See how these cultures influenced the local architecture that still stands today in the historic center.

Stroll past Romanesque walls on your way to the Porto Cathedral and Baroque architecture by the Church of Santa Clara. And no visit to Portugal is complete without gazing upon the beautiful Moorish tiles that adorn many buildings in the area.

From the city center, proceed towards the Ponte de Dom Luis I and look out upon the Douro River and traditional Rabelo boats. These boats were used to transport the grapes to the wine cellars which are the next stop on the tour. Learn about the process of making fortified wine before ending your tour at Ribeira Square.
