With Lisbon on our itinerary we wanted to add another Portugal city to our plans. Lot's of people on tripadvisor recommended Porto so that helped our decision.
We caught the train from Lisbon which was nice and easy and Catrina from 4Rooms organised a driver to pick us up from the train station - this made it very easy and the driver was waiting right at the platform where our train came in.
4Rooms at Foz a 15 minute bus trip from Porto city was great and nicely located near the ocean for walks along the boardwalk. We got some really nice sunset photos.
The bus trip to Porto was nice and easy - amazing watching the big buses navigate the small streets.
We wandered around the city and then walked down through the old city and the many steps to the bottom - this was a really interesting walk. Then it was across the bridge to the front of the port houses and back on the cable car which provides great views of Porto.
We really enjoyed Porto and everything was inexpensive which made it a very economical place to visit.
