My next stop was second biggest city of Portugal and home of the port wine Porto. It is stretched around the steep hills of Douro river valley.

Roofs of Porto

The history of Porto dates back to the 4th century, to the Roman occupation of the Iberian Peninsula.

Now it is a vibrant touristic town with many places to see and great nightlife.

I enjoyed getting lost in the narrow streets of the old town, but I don’t recommend it because you can end up in some sketchy neighborhood.

Saturday market

Every Saturday there is an interesting market under Ponte do Infante.
