Portugal’s second largest city sees spectacular sunsets over the Rio Douro River in lending to the notion of Porto as a city ripe for romantic breaks. First time visitors to the city will marvel at the wash of colour adorning the historic centre in the Ribeira district, where the rustic majesty of Porto comes alive in the remnants of Roman foundations upon which crowds gather to observe the wares of old storefronts, creating scenes of impassioned antiquity. Wine lovers will delight in the city’s status as the founder of port wine, where Vila Nova de Gaia and its idyllic riverside wine caves become an enticing haven for drinking, either before or after an evening enjoying some of the top rock, jazz and electronic artists which frequent the city’s array of entertainment venues.
