Exploring Porto today! First stop was a little train tour, called Magic Train or something that takes you to the local Port making winery place (I don't know what it's called it's not a winery?!) here we got to see the cellar and all the barrels and have a tour of how everything is made and stored.

Along the river under an avenue of grapevines then trees into the most beautiful town overlooking a large river with a large roman pedestrian bridge.
