Porto is a small town, so you can superficially explore the most emblematic places in just one day.
In the other days or on a future visit you can spend more time in every small part of the city, where you will be amazed at how many experiences and new things you can see and explore.
Be aware that different times of day will provide different experiences and activities in the same places. Don’t worry, you will have time to repeat and explore each place you spent on your first day. The downtown is very small but full of nooks and crannies.
Before planning everything, the first step we recommend is checking the weather on this Portuguese site so you can see the weather for each hour: https://www.ipma.pt/en/otempo/prev.localidade.hora/#Porto&Porto
- If the weather is good, you can start by having the hearty breakfast on a terrace right in the city center. Here you can enjoy a variety of bakeries that will let you know what locals enjoy eating in the early hours of the day:
- Padaria Ribeiro
