Porto is a coastal city in northwest Portugal known for its stately bridges and Port wine production. It is one of Europe’s oldest tourist destinations. Its wealth of monumental and artistic heritage, Port wine, open-air leisure spaces and cultural life are just some of the reasons to visit this city. Porto has a special charm for anyone visiting the city for the first time, as it does for those coming back for a second visit, to discover a city that is simultaneously modern and authentic. The historical centre of Porto is classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
Awarded European Best Destination in 2014, the city is bustling all year-round. Events enliven the annual cultural and sporting calendars, culminating in ‘São João’, the city’s very own feast. Not by chance, we propose organizing Eurovis 2019 the week prior to this festivity, allowing participants to stay for the weekend and join the party. // visitporto.travel
