Weekend in Porto

Porto is a perfect alternative to Lisbon, with a compact medieval centre complemented by high-spirited nightlife, beaches for lounging, good food and a unique port-wine history.

On weekends, drinkers spill out onto the streets in this busy nightlife hub in Bolhão. Ask a tripeiro (Porto resident) where the party is at and chances are they’ll direct you to Galeria, centred around Rua Galeria de Paris and Rua Cândido dos Reis. Offbeat bars rule here: try the gin house, champagne bar and artsy cafés and linger for chilled out DJ beats if the mood takes.


Quality produce, wines from the Douro Valley and seafood hauled from Porto’s Atlantic doorstep have all contributed to the city’s growing reputation as a top-class food destination. Take a half-day tour with Taste Porto Tours, which includes a visit to the 19th-century market hall, Mercado do Bolhão, where traders hawk regional specialities (; £45).
