Porto, the largest city in northern Portugal, is a great destination for a city break. With its traditional architecture, cobbled lanes, grand Gothic buildings, iconic Azulejo tiles, and old wine cellars, there is plenty to explore. The city is also home to the Livraria Lello bookstore, which is said to have inspired the appearance of Hogwarts in the Harry Potter universe, and Praia do Carneiro beach, which is backed by a 16th-century fortress. There are also boat trips that take you beneath seven bridges that span the Douro River around Porto.

Just a short bus or tram...
