Porto - must be visited: Porto has an excellent new airport (received ACI Airport Service Quality awards last year) and several companies operating. Ryanair established recently a hub. Airport is connected to the city centre by Metro.
One of the oldest cities in Europe, Porto has enjoyed World Heritage classification since 1996. Perched on the banks of river Douro, one of its six bridges was designed by Gustave Eiffel, whose signature touch is immediately recognised.
Along these very banks, visit the iconic cellars and discover more than 30 Port wine labels, most of which are world-famous.
Within the town of Porto itself, lovely vast panels of Portuguese tiles, in all number of intricate designs and colours, can be admired in Carmo Church, Almas Chapel, the interior of Sao Bento station and indeed along many of its rustic streets. The town is equally rich in historic monuments and outstanding examples of Baroque architecture, such as Sao Francisco, the Santa Clara churches, town hall.
Porto - Comtemporary architecture: In more recent years, Porto has carved an enviable reputation for its contemporary architecture, two laureate Pritzker prize Siza Vieira (1992) and Souto Moura (2011) including modern designs such as the Serralves Comtemporary Art Museum and House of Music, both of which host permanent exhibitions and shows.
By train one day journay: Costa Verde lies in the Northern region of Portugal, and includes wonderful, charming cities such as Braga, Guimaraes and Viana, all located just 50 – 70km from Porto. Day trips are easily organised from Porto’s Sao Bento Station.

Guestbook comments from the manager
The Porto Downtown Studios is found in a excellent location in Porto.It is
close to all the major attractions in the historical center and to
the Ribeira river area (about a 15 minute walk).The studio is a large
airy room with all the necessary facilities for a couple. It is very clean and well maintained.
No less important the owner Jaime provides excellent customer service and is there
upon arrival to give map, tips and advice. He maintains contact by mail or sms for any
further information or requests (he ordered a cab to take us to the airport). Mature couples
should be advised that there is no elevator in the building but the steps are not steep.
If the windows are kept open there is noise coming in from the busy street below - but
is quiet during the late evening hours. I highly recommend this property to all.
