Portugal's 'second-city' Porto offers a more traditional holiday experience to Lisbon and is positioned on the bank of the beautiful Douro River. It's traditionally an industrial city (hence the name, given Porto means 'port'), but is becoming increasingly popular as a travel destination and has enough going on to keep you occupied for days. I wrote a Porto city guide for Australia's Big Bus Tour & Travel Guide, where you can read my picks of things to see, do and eat in the city; and also prepared an article about Where to stay and what to do in Porto for The Telegraph.
Make sure to also check out my post Interesting facts about Porto to learn some interesting facts, and browse the Porto album in my photo gallery.
If I stumble upon anything I think is worth checking out in Portugal you'll find it here. I've also included links to articles I've written about Portugal for national and international publications.
