Porto may be a medieval city, but it certainly isn’t gathering dust. This Portuguese paradise is a hive of winding streets sploshed generously with colourful architecture and a zesty food and drink scene. Eye-catching street art abounds in Porto, alongside spellbinding baroque churches, cosy eateries and port wine cellars. Booking flights to Porto couldn’t be simpler as this quirky town has just one airport, Francisco Sá Carneiro International Airport.
Bottles of port pop all year round in Porto. If you prefer to raise a glass in a sun-drenched setting, then April to September is the best time to snap up some return flights to Porto. Cheap flights to Porto are available during the spring and winter shoulder seasons when wetter weather tends to keep the crowds at bay. If a bit of festive fun is on the cards, book tickets to Porto in June for the Festival of St John of Porto. Known locally as Festa de São João do Porto, this city-wide street party involving jumping over flames and dancing through the centre of town is one for daredevils and party animals alike.
Booking cheap tickets to Porto is easy with a range of international air carriers zipping to and from the city. TAP Portugal and British Airways both zoom direct out of London Gatwick Airport, while Lufthansa pops in and out of London Heathrow. British Airways, Iberia Airlines and TAP Portugal lead the charge out of Manchester International Airport with a nifty network of routes.
Francisco Sá Carneiro International Airport is only seven miles north of the city centre, so you won’t be waiting long for that first glass of port. You can hop on the metro and travel to the heart of Porto for less than €5. Take your pick from the choice of public and private bus services on offer, though you should opt for the public options if you’re watching the pennies. Taxis are also plentiful and a journey from the airport to Porto city centre will set you back between €15 and €20.
Amble through the cobbled alleys and streets of Porto at a laid-back pace and drink in the sparkling ambiance of this dreamy city. A designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, Porto is monumental in both architecture and beauty. This is a hilly city with plenty of vibrant vistas to feast your eyes on – nip up to the top of Torre dos Clérigos, for example, and soak up the dazzling views of the city. Had enough walking for one day? Trundling around the city in a vintage tram is a funky way to get from A to B and it’s also an attraction in itself, so hop aboard and spend a chilled-out hour or two enjoying the views of Porto’s streetscapes.
