Porto Memories: Six Bridges Cruise and Porto at Night

One of our favorites stops on my pre-Camino tour of Portugal was a two-nights stay in Porto. Many pilgrims start their Camino Portugués from there, and I highly recommend spending a couple of days to explore this incredible city. Here is the first in a series of posts on things to do in Porto.

Porto Cruise

What better way to shake off jet lag than a cruise on the Duoro river?

Okay, it's a booze cruise.

You get to taste tawny port on this boat. Okay, it’s a booze cruise, but a classy one. 😉

Sandeman Port is a big name here

Cruising under the Dom Luís I Bridge

The boat cruises up the river where you can see six  bridges.

Mom and I had a good time, as always.

We crossed another boat to disembark. These cruises are fun so give it a go!

To disembark, we crossed over another boat.

The one-hour cruises cost around €12. Click to learn more.

Porto at Night

After the cruise, we had a nice dinner with the tour group, then strolled along the waterfront. Porto is absolutely gorgeous at night! It was even more so with a full moon.

You know it's a good night when you there's unlimited vinho and flaming sausage at the table.

Are you mesmerized?
