Make the most of your time in the city and walk down to Ribeira, one of the oldest and more typical neighbourhoods by the river Douro. On the way, visit the Palacio da Bolsa, and its magnificent Arab room and the Casa do Infante where it is believed that Henry the Navigator was born in 1394. Walk alongside the river and cross the Luiz I bridge to the other side, to Gaia, where most of the famous Portwine brands still have their cellars. All of them welcome visitors for guided tours and wine tastings. Have lunch at one of the many restaurants and enjoy the magnificent view overlooking Porto.
