Your Destination —
Picturesque Porto is much more than just a place of pilgrimage for port wine lovers - although this unique industry is among the many attractions of Portugal's second city. Straddling the River Douro just a few kilometres inland from the Atlantic, the city is closer to Spanish Galicia than it is to Lisbon. Porto possesses an appealing pan-Iberian atmosphere to complement its many historic charms; the old city centre is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
The city centre is architecturally fascinating, with many of the buildings faced with distinctive blue-patterned Portuguese tiling. Outside this area, though, Porto's undoubted traditional appeal is balanced by the trappings of a lively modern European city - making it an ideal destination if you're looking for a rich mix of culture and fun.
The Grande Hotel do Porto is at the heart of this eclectic atmosphere, just a short walk from the Ponte Luis I bridge and situated in a lively hub of restaurants, bars, and cafes. For your city break to this charming city, this is the ideal place to stay to be at the centre of the culture!
