Bridges and port wine are what characterises Oporto, Portugal’s second largest city after Lisbon. The main reason tourists or travellers visit Oporto is to sample its legendary port wine.
Also you can visit right next to Oporto, Vila Nova de Gaia or you may choose to take a river cruise along the Douro. The whole district is filled with prosperous cities, as industry and commerce thrive there, however you can drive along many calm roads with wonderful views over the river or enjoy a rugged and still unspoilt coastline.
Oporto is also known for its characteristic sailboats, the “Barcos Rabelos”, which used to ship Port downstream from the vineyards.
