Want to get away from the English weather for a few days throughout the colder months? Why not indulge yourself with a quick trip to Porto! One of Portugal’s biggest city, and the city that Portugal happens to be named after, it’s a wonder that so few people have actually seen the wonders that it holds.
This offer on travelbird.co.uk is a really good deal! It not only includes your Hotel and Flights in the deal but also some extras! In your price you get a 48 hour City Tours Bus Ticket, which will enable you to go and see all of the attractions that you want to see really easily! I would definitely recommend making the most of it, because the places they stop at are definitely worth seeing! As well as this, you will also get a 50 minute cruise to the Six Bridges. These are the bridges that connect Porto to Gaia, you get a great view of them on the way out on the cruise. The view, however, when you turn back is one of my favourite views. Don’t forget your camera! If you have time, you also get free entry to one of Porto’s wine cellars, which you can ask at the front desk about when you check in.
In the evenings you will be eating out, because your meals are not included. One of my favourite restaurants in Porto is O Paparico, which has received a rating of 4.5/5 on TripAdvisor as well as a Certificate of Excellence for 2014. It is definitely worth a visit, don’t be deterred by the exterior, inside is a different story!
You will be staying in the Holiday Inn Express Porto-Exponor, which received a rating of 77% on TripAdvisor. It’s a really good hotel to use as a base and go back to in the evening once you’ve enjoyed your day out! It’s easy enough to get to the centre of Porto, either with a Taxi, which shouldn’t cost more than £6 each way, or you could use the metro system, costing about £1 each way (click here to see more details).
This deal is a really good deal, especially with all of the extras added on top of the Hotel and Flights! It is worth noting that the dates I have selected for this booking can be changed, however some dates are more expensive than others. I would also recommend booking this sooner rather than later because it’s a really appealing offer that will sell out quickly!
