Bike ride to the sea and to the "Castelo do Queijo"


From the centre of the "Rotunda da Boavista" looking westwards, you can see the Atlantic Ocean at the end of "Avenida da Boavista". It gives you the impression of being very close to the ocean, however, she is 5 kilometers away.
You can use the bike path (former tramway) and cycle all the way to the ocean and the old castle, "Castelo do Queijo".
Along the Av.da Boavista there are some beautiful old villas in park-like gardens.
Once at the Castelo do Queijo follow the bike path towards the Douro river to the bridge D. Luís.
An excellent way to discover Porto.

>> Bike rental - from 13 €/day
>> Electric bikes - 10 €/2 hous - 40 €/day

Tiles of São Bento Station
Douro river cruises



Travel by metro to the Train Station of S.Bento. The front hall is completely tiled and beautiful in the detail. Most panels in the station are historical scenes that cover entire walls of the entrance hall.

From there it is not far to the river Douro. You can make several boat trips on the Douro. It's a great experience to see the city of Porto on the north bank and the City of Gaia on the south bank of the river.

You can also make a cruise on a sailing boat towards the interior of the country, and visit some of the many Port Wine Quintas found on the Douro Valley region.

The bridge "Ponte D. Luís" and the Port Wine Cellars


If you take the metro to the city of Gaia, you will pass on top of the famous "Ponte D.Luis" the iron bridge over the river Douro, with magnificent views. Take the first exit after the bridge and walk down through beautiful narrow streets to visit the Port Wine cellars of Vila Nova de Gaia. You can also go down (and up again) by cable car.

The tavern "Venham mais 5"


The Tavern Venham mais 5, is located at the Rua de St. Ildefonso, 219, close to the city center. It’s a typical restaurant worth visiting and the price quality ratio is excellent. Take the subway exit at Bolhão Station and walk to the restaurant in about 5 minutes.
