Over-run with tourists

Disappointingly tacky. The setting is very photogenic, but it's over-run with tourists. Tourists gawping at other tourists isn't my idea of a fun holiday.

Day 12 - Where have all the tourists gone? We know

Porto (or Oporto to some) is a must-see for visitors to Portugal, and our main reason for staying in Viseu was that it was fairly close to Porto. Up till now we'd been pleasantly distracted by the attractions at our doorstep, but we decided this would be the day that we'd drive the 130km to Porto. As already mentioned, the Portugese motorways are …

... along. Cabbed our way to the train station to catch our overnight train to San Sebastián. At this point, we were all tired and more tired. The connecting train to the sleeper train had us waiting for a few hours at a small train station with nothing but 2 or 3 small restaurants 200m or so away.

Portugal, or more specifically Porto, is famous for exporting Port from the nearby Douro valley. Many a time my family has been found knocking back a bottle of Tawny playing 500 on Christmas night, or any another big occasion for that matter, but I ...

... Porto (Freixo Palace Hotel), our riverfront home for the next two nights. It is one of the truly unique hotels in the world. The reception area, bar and dining area are in a manor house built in 1742! The hotel rooms are in an adjacent building that was originally a manufacturing plant. The original chimney for an kiln(?) still stands next as a symbol of the property. The 87 rooms are beautifully done; definitely a 5 star property and a great way ...
