Ahhh, the sunny coastline of the Atlantic Ocean and the sound of seagulls coming through the open window of my Airbnb flat. Now those are really good memories, I have to tell you.
Well, to be honest, the first thing that impressed me was the insanely low fare Uber perceives there. We paid around 8 euros from the airport to our flat, a 13-14 km journey. But, be aware that those prices only apply to Uber. I've talked to some locals and they told me that the cab companies are 3 or even 4 times more expensive, so, you should be careful with that.
The Clérigos Church and its Tower, the Riviera area along the river Douro, every centimeter of the city is like a postcard and I'm not kidding. Just have a look for yourself!
Probably the best thing about Porto is its vitality. The people are so nice and always smiling. There's a summer vibe in the air that just makes you want to start dancing in the middle of the street. I actually did just that and it was awesome!
Oh, and if you do get to Porto, don't you dare leave before trying their world-renowned wine. You'll never find a drink like that anywhere else. I drank a Tawny and it was like no other wine I tasted before. It had somewhat of a liqueur aroma, but more floral. It was simply amazing!
My fellow adventurers, by all means, go to this wonderful place of the world. I promise you, you won't regret it!
