Charming flat very well located right in the center of Oporto (part of UNESCO World Heritage àrea) where you can walk to all the places you want to visit. Many of the city's attractions are very close to it. Due to its important role on Porto's history, 'Rua das Flores' Street has more foreign people visiting it during the day than local people. It's a place you cannot miss visiting. But why not staying on it for some days instead? The apartment is at 300 meters from Ribeira Square which offers a variety of restaurants, cafes and bars and the well know port wine cellars at 800 meters where you can taste our nectar of the gods.

The apartment was ok . The over scenting of the bedding and towels definitely was a negative. You have to climb up a lot of stairs with no railings. This could be dangerous. She gave us a lot of information and the location was excellent.More
