How many days in Oporto?

Hello,

I was in Oporto just for a day, as a stop in a cruise. I was enchanted with the city but didnt have much time to explore. I'm now planning to fly there next year and I'm trying to decide if 3 nights is too many? Would appreciate any "must sees" recommendations. After I'll make my way to Tui, Galicia, where I'm planning to start walking the last segment of the Camino Portugués to Santiago.

Thank you in advance for any help

Depending on what time you arrive, I'd take 3 days/2 nights.

Thank you, that was my original idea but I now see people talking about not missing Douro Valley, and going to PInhao. Is that mainly for scenery? Can this be done as day trips from Oporto?

If you want to visit the Douro valley (which IMO is a 'must') you'll have to add a day.

There are many organized day trips - many by boat - from Porto. You can also go on your own, take the train and then take a small boat tour in Pinhão.
