After a leisurely lunch, your private guide will meet you for a walking tour of the rest of the city. Enjoy weaving through the beautiful cobbled alleys towards the Church of Sao Francisco, a stunning Gothic church known as ‘the cave of gold’ thanks to its dazzlingly opulent gold leaf interior. Next journey to the Stock Exchange Palace to admire its neoclassical architecture.
You can not travel to Porto without trying its eponymous port wine, and your final destination is one of the famous port houses for an afternoon of tasting. That means heading over to the exquisite wine cellars for an introduction to Port wine, Vinho Verde, as well as some of the country’s lesser-known appellations.
DINNER TIME For those looking to push the boat out, The Restaurant (with two Michelin stars at The Yeatman hotel) cannot be beaten. It is renowned for its fish dishes and extensive wine cellar.
“A petiscos tasting dinner combines many small dishes that showcase the country’s rich heritage.”
