Things to do

-Douro River: Few places in the world yield a more soothing view than the banks of the famous Douro River. A walk down the front of this clean river lined with pretty buildings is a revitalising experience but what’s even more relaxing is taking a seat in one of the cafes there and taking in the riverside scenery with a chilled beverage or ice-cream in your hand. Boat tours along the river are available on demand.

-Monuments: From their holiday homes in Vila do Conde visitors won’t have to travel long to see the centuries-old buildings scattered in Porto. The Sao Francisco Church is one of these must-visit edifices. Construction of this building began in the 14th century and was finally completed in 1825. Famous for having an interior lavished in gold and its Baroque styling, this church stands out from the many others in the city. Another building worth taking the time to see is the Neo-classic Palacio da Bolsa which was opened in 1891.

-Cultural events: Porto hosts a number of annual events which tourists can join in. Summer visitors can participate in the Sao Joao Festival which takes place between 23rd and 24th of June. The highlight of this fete is stuffing oneself full of sardines, boiled potatoes and red wine. Queima das Fitas is a major event celebrated every spring.

-Estadio do Dragao: The Stadium of the Dragon is the fortress of one of Portugal’s most successful football clubs; FC Porto. Holidaymakers residing in Vila do Conde holiday rentals can take advantage of their proximity to this outstanding facility to take a tour of one of Europe’s finest football stadia and get pictures of them taken. They could also buy themselves tickets and get to watch FC Porto in action.

-Food and drink: A trip to Portugal always promises a treat for the taste buds and Porto does not disappoint in this regard. One of the eateries tourists will want to check out is the ODE Porto Wine House. This ambient establishment serves authentic Portuguese cuisine whose ingredients all come from farmers in the vicinity. The food is immaculately prepared and the wine is top of the range.

This sweet apartment was and ideal base for exploring Porto. Opening the shutters to see the beautiful tiled Carmelite convent across the way was amazing, and there is easy access to public transport nearby. It's clean, elegant and comfortable, and the breakfasts provided by our lovely hosts from their bakery below were absolutely delicious, served with grace by the incredibly hard working staff, and set us up for the day. We marvelled at the range of beautiful pastries, and had to try a different one each day. It is right in the centre of the action, which continues into the early hours, so might not suit everyone, but you get a real sense of the vibrancy of the city, which we loved. We hope to return and carry on exploring this lovely city.
