Hi everyone.

In June we are heading north to Porto for a weeks holiday and would welcome any suggestions of things to see in Porto but also places to visit further North.

Any suggestions appreciated

Many thanks

You could visit Ponte da Barca, Ponte de Lima and Geres. The towns have lots of charm and Geres is spectacular.

hi there , in Porto the following we would recommend :

1.Palacio de Cristal and its gardens
2.the museum down by the Praca d Riberia (near the river ) ,full of old photos of the Douro but also of our region.
3.take an electric tram along the waterfront to the mouth of the river at Foz d Douro.
4.the cathedral is also worth visiting.
5.Mercado Bolhao

hope this helps.
