"The "problem" with Porto...too much to see and do" Porto by Martin_S.

Porto Travel Guide: 1,048 reviews and 2,787 photos

Porto, on the upper coast of Portugal is one of those cities that just has too much to do and see, no, that is not a complaint, just a statement of fact. We spent three days and still will have to return to finish seeing what we missed. We spent only a short time in the Ribeira district, a UNESCO site, pictured here.

Or spend time wandering the Se (cathedral) of Porto...

Or make a trek to the other side of the river to Villa Nova de Gaia and its many manufacturers of the famous Port Wine as you can see we did to the Croft facility.
