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.

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.
