Airport to Fenix Hotel

Hi,

We are off to porto at the end of September and I was just wondering what the best way to get from the airport to the Fenix Hotel is?

Also, I know the weather probably won't be at its best but are there any nice beaches around the area?

What would be the top 3 must -sees in the city? There doesn;t seem to be as much information on this city as there is other European Cities on the net..

Thanks for any info/advice you have to offer!!

If you’re travelling light then you take the metro direct from the airport to Casa da Musica station, which is located about 10 minutes walk from your hotel. The trip takes about 25 minutes and costs about €1.85. If not a taxi should not cost much more than 20 euros. The metro is also a good way for you to get form your hotel to the city centre. Don't thgrow away your metro tickets, they are re-usable.

In terms of attractions, there have been many posts on this subject in this forum, take a look through the threads. But briefly, I suggest the Port Wine Lodges on the south bank of the river Douro in Gaia; the Dom Luis bridge, which is also on the riverfront; the Palácio de Cristal gardens; and the shopping streets in the area around Rua Santa Catarina. Exploring the historic centre is something most tourists enjoy, even though there are a lot of buildings in poor state of repair – though in some ways this almost adds to the rather unique atmosphere of the city. Bring comfortable walking shoes, it’s very hilly!

There are nice beaches north and south of Porto, accessible by train. Espinho beach is probably the easiest to get to as it is located almost directly in front of the train station. Miramar is also nice, but a 1-2km walk form the station.
