Porto, Portugal 2013
About this blog
A week in Porto and surroundings just to get away from everyday life and to enjoy some good food and nice cafes and towns.
Portugal food & drinks prices in cafes and at outdoor terraces kept astounding me:
- red wine: €0.80
- espresso: €0.50
- a full bacalhão salad and 4 port wines: €6
- a beer: €1.25
I can warmly recommend Porto as a holiday destination! It's a lovely city with friendly people, lots to see and do, close to many beaches with comfy cafes overlooking the ocean, and plenty of other villages and places to see nearby as well.
Porto is spread over a hill so the streets can be steep. Wear comfortable shoes, take your time, and do not be deceived by how nearby everything seems on a map. :-)
