Amazing city with lot of cultural spots. Fantastic wine and views. The sunset over the city is to die for. Great architectural landmarks and awesome boat trips. Totally recommend it for everyone that loves to contact with people, since everyone is really friendly.Recommended for:

Porto is a place of unlimited possibilities In the day you can walk around the city and see the sights, in the nighttime, after a long dinner with new friends, you will definitely drink too much wine. You will let your guard down, and some creepy eighteen year old Brazilian boy will definitely take advantage of you. You will wake up at 2AM beside this total stranger in a bed that is not yours. Your horror will be inexpressible. The following days will be tainted with shame. You will walk the beautiful streets of Porto, poking into the giant old Cathedrals. While others tourists are taking pictures of the many golden Jesuses mounted on the walls, you will find yourself asking for forgiveness. Or guidance. But you know what you have to do.
You feign confidence as you ask the Portuguese pharmacist for Plan B. You correct her as she begins to give you directions to a night club that, coincidentally, is also called Plan B. Eventually you get the drugs. You take the pills. They're probably not necessary from a medical standpoint but they are symbolic. They are erasers. And you need a blank page.
Your trip has only just begun. There is much of left write.

Porto is the place that Gayle mentions most often on trying to figure out a way to come back. The Douro river is gorgeous and with all the Port houses on one side of the river, there's more wine tasting and great food to be enjoyed. The Center City area is also cool and we only scratched the rich surface in the limited amount of time that we enjoyed here.

Porto is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, and is wildly underrated as a travel destination. Its rich history manifests through architectural masterpieces (churches, castles etc) and commercial ventures, namely the many port wine houses that dot the southern bank of the Douro. Lose yourself in winding cobblestone streets, and then find yourself again after that first bite of bolinhos bacalhau (codfish balls, a specialty).
