Porto, a city worth visiting

Porto, at the mouth of the Douro River, is an interesting city. Its twin across the Douro, Vila Nova de Gaia, is where you find all the old port “lodges” (it is no longer an obligation to be there for a port producer). Porto itself is a superb city to visit, with its old city centre, river-side walk filled with restaurant and cafés and beautiful views.

It is also the perfect starting point for a wine tour to visit the vineyards of the Douro Valley wine regions. We have recently published on our travel blog, the BKWine Travelog, a few videos and pictures of Porto to give you an impression of what it is like. The danger is that you will want to go there!
