The Costa Verde region

There have always been plenty of reasons to visit Portugal's second city, but now that it's ambitiously opening itself up to the world with bold new architecture and cultural attractions, it's guaranteed to please everyone. Those who've always wanted to soak up the city's atmosphere and wine now have better access to it all, and those who are just beginning to discover it, will find a wide variety of attractions.

Starting at the monumental central avenue (Avenida dos Aliados), all the way down to the riverfront, UNESCO has declared this a World Heritage Site, with churches dripping with gold (São Francisco Church and Santa Clara Church), and other spectacular interiors (Palacio da Bolsa's Alhambra-like decoration and São Bento Station's dazzling tiled walls), combined with a highly atmospheric and charismatic medieval quarter with colorful houses facing the river and its picturesque boats. This is the soul of the city that should be the starting point of a visit - and the place to return at night for the liveliest restaurants and bars.

More bars and restaurants are found in the more upscale Foz district, which is ideal for a final stroll before leaving the city.

You should allow at least two days to get the full taste of the city (and yes, of the wine too), and if you wish to add more time, you can always use Oporto as the gateway to the treasures found in Portugal's northern cities (such as Braga, Guimarães, and Viana do Castelo), as well as the spectacular Douro Valley.

Vila Nova de Gaia

The apartment, despite is located on the other side of the Douro River (in Vila Nova de Gaia) is the best place to contemplate Oporto city and Douro river in the front row, as you can see in the photos taken from the apartment.

Is also closer from the historical central than other places in Oporto city and you also can reach there quickly, side by side with Douro river.

On the other side of the street there is the Arrabida mall, where you can find everything you need (supermarket, restaurants, cloth and shoes stores, laundry, cinemas, hairdresser, gym with sauna and swimming pool, several other stores and even an hospital (hope you never need it!)

You also have bus and taxis in less than a minute walk!

Casa da Musica (in Boavista) is less than 10 minutes by bus.

The beach is also near (5Km - less than 10 minutes by car or 30 minutes walk) and there are blue flag beaches (Quality certificated)
