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

A travel blog entry by spydah on Sep 12, 2014

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 …

Porto: A Closer Look

... for Lisbon in the morning, so we decided to eat an early dinner and head back to our hotel to pack and relax! Porto has been a great introduction to Portugal: welcoming, charming, and calmer than busy London. For a future trip, we would head inland to the Douro Valley as we have heard it is breathtaking. We have also learned that we need to know the Portuguese name and address of tourist sights before entering a taxi, as there is a slight language ...

Porto, Portugal

... charming collection of shops and restaurants awaited. Here we saw some young, Portugese teens who were jumping off of the bridge that crossed the Douro River, a drop of about 30-40 feet! We ventured across the bridge and found the main part of Porto with even more shops and restaurants and other sights we hope to visit tomorrow! Portugal is know for their seafood, so we decided to indulge in some of the local foods and wine for our dinner before calling it a ...

The Birthplace of My Port Preoccupation

... bank of the Douro River. In Porto, there are over 50 cellars where one can take a tour, learn about the port-making process, and sample and purchase a wide variety of ports. During our first afternoon, Zach and I toured Taylor's and Churchill port houses, having a few samples in each cellar. On each tour, the guides shared roughly the same information, so i started to get a feel ...

Portugal- Week 5

... down to the River Douro. It's interesting that this river flows through Spain and Portugal, but Spain calls it the Duero and Portugal calls it the Douro. We visited a Port Wine museum and took a funicular up to the top of Ponte Luis Bridge. This bridge is significant because it was built by Gustave Eiffel, who also built the Eiffel tower in Paris. It had amazing views of both the river and the city. Our walk across the bridge lead us to a Teleférico (cable ...
