3 days in Porto Itinerary

3 days in Porto Itinerary

If you want a city break that’s sole focus is it’s delicious food and wine, colourful and bright architecture, warm sunny days and makes you feel happy and relaxed; Porto is for you.

For some reason everyone tends to favour a trip to Lisbon over Porto, which is crazy as I definitely feel that Porto has the upper hand. Any place that’s named after the wine it produces is surely a winning destination! Am I right?

I visited Porto for 3 days in May with my besties and had one hell of an epic trip. May have put on a few pounds and my liver was furious but trust me it’s all worth it.

Read on for a detailed 3 day itinerary to Porto, with a few nuggets of information on where to stay and essentials for your own epic Porto visit.

Where to stay in Rome | Affordable Luxury Hotels

Finding accommodation in Rome is no mean feat with so many to choose from and ranging in prices, where do you even begin to look? Never mind book anything! Hotels in Rome are diverse and depending on location can be very expensive. Do you want a boutique hotel with a rooftop terrace or a cute 3 star hotel in central Rome? Anything goes in the Eternal City. 

Before thinking of the hotel itself, I find it is easier to choose the neighbourhood that suits your style, taste and price range. In this guide I have split my recommendations into 5 neighbourhoods, focusing on 3 - 5 star hotels in Rome suited for different budgets and of course with the emphasis on affordable luxury.

Review | Kimpton De Witt Amsterdam Hotel

Review | Kimpton De Witt Amsterdam Hotel

The Kimpton De Witt Amsterdam is a 5 star, ideally located, force to be reckoned with US Boutique hotel in Central Amsterdam. With 274 deluxe rooms as well as 15 rooms in original 17th Century Townhouses the Kimpton really does have tons of character and charm.

I've had my eye on the Kimpton De Witt since last year as I loved the modern and botanical style plus the location looked ideal for a first visit, so naturally it was my first choice. As I live for affordable luxury, I took one look at the pictures and knew I didn't care about the price as I wanted to experience this gorgeous boutique hotel for you, the readers (not for myself of course).

I have compiled a thorough Copenhagen Travel Guide with a 3 day downloadable Itinerary to take with you, so you don't have to lift a finger. Handy! Let's dive into my Must - See guide to Copenhagen.
