Porto Memories: Six Bridges Port Cruise And Porto At Night
One of our favorites stops on our pre-Camino tour of Portugal was a two-nights stay in Porto. Many pilgrims start their Camino Portugués from there, and I highly recommend spending a couple days to explore this incredible city. Here is the first in a series of posts on things to do in Porto.
What better way to shake off jet lag than a cruise on the Duoro river?

You get to taste tawny port on this boat. Okay, it’s a booze cruise, but a classy one.
A nice couple from Southern California
Some of the nice people on the Trafalgar tour from USA, Australia, and Canada
Sandeman Port is a big name here
Cruising under the Dom Luís I Bridge
The boat cruises up the river where you can see six of Porto’s bridges.
Mom and I had a good time, as always.

The one-hour cruises cost around €12. Click to learn more.

Porto at Night
After the cruise, we had a nice dinner with the tour group, then strolled along the waterfront. Porto is absolutely gorgeous at night! It was even more so with a full moon.
You know it’s a good night when you there’s unlimited vinho and flaming sausage at the table.
