Porto offers rich Port wines and the freshest seafood, but also a fusion of modern with gothic and baroque styles. Charming cobbled streets wind through the city exposing all the beauty of the diverse architectural signature of Porto. Such variety offers plenty to savour and this is what makes Porto one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe. No wonder that the Old Town, which spreads on the scenic Douro River, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
