    Palaces and port—cheers to Porto

    Famous for its historic UNESCO-listed center, not to mention is fantastic port wine, Porto is a dream start to your Portuguese vacation. Book a centrally located Porto vacation rental and have both the Douro and the Ribiera (the historic district) within an easy walk. Spend endless days exploring the city's many sights. Visit the Serralves Museum and the Casa da Musica, or marvel at the palatial rooms in the 19th-century Palacio de Bolsa. But don't miss a tasting tour of the city's fantastic Port Wine Cellars. So good, you should do it twice!

    Raise a glass to Porto

    Perched on the banks of Portugal's famous Douro River, Porto is an easy city to explore. Book a Porto vacation rental in the center of town and you won't be far from many of the main sights. Take a free walking tour of the medieval Ribiera, the UNESCO-listed riverside district, and see old merchants' houses rub shoulders with cheery pavement cafes and port cellars. Famous as the home of port, a Portuguese fortified wine, a true highlight of a visit to the city is a tasting tour of the old port cellars, so don't miss it.

    Like fine wine, Porto's art scene is complex and fruity

    For fans of modern European art, a visit to the Serralves Museum is a must-see attraction. The most visited art gallery in Portugal, it opened in 1999 and features a collection of over 4300 works, including Francis Bacon, Franz West, and Claes Oldenburg. Another big draw for culture vultures is the Palacio da Bolsa, a 19th-century palace-turned-national museum. To get the most out of the museum, join a guided tour of its many rooms. Time your visit right and you could catch a classical concert at the Casa da Musica, the city's modern concert hall.

    Any Porto in a storm

    Although perched close to the Atlantic coast, Porto benefits from a mild Mediterranean climate. Think long, hot summers with plenty of sunshine and blue skies, followed by short, mild winters, which can be rather humid. Summer is the city's peak time for visitors. From June to September, the city is at its busiest and Porto vacation rentals can get booked up well in advance. For the best choice, visit in fall or spring, when there's a higher chance of rain, but plenty of sunshine too, so pack an umbrella.

    The long and winding road—Porto's Santiago de Camino

    Straddling the famous Douro River, Porto is a charming medieval city on Portugal's Atlantic Coast. There are several city parks for a morning constitutional walk, such as Porto City Park, to the northwest of the city. For the best ocean views, climb up to the bastions of Castelo do Queijo, a 17th-century fort. But for something a little more challenging, many come to Porto to walk part of the Camino de Santiago, a long-distance pilgrim walking trail, which runs from Porto to Galicia.
