Porto on foot

We took the Free Porto Walking Tour this morning – we love these tours and take them whenever they are offered in cities we visit. The guide is usually young and offers some different insights and snippets of information on the city.  This one, like most others, was three-hours long and we covered much of Porto’s history and many interesting facts.

Clocking in at 17,353 steps, 7.91 miles, and 55 sets of stairs! Almost all on cobblestones!

This post’s photos are all sights of Porto but through an artistic filter.

 

Views of the city of Porto from the two-tiered iron bridge  – the Dom Luis I bridge (completed in 1886)

Steep alleys twisting down from town to the river.

The ubiquitous Pastela de Nata. An evening glass of port.

The bridge upwards from the lower tier. Port crates.

Alongside the Duoro at dusk in Gaia (across from Porto).

Graffiti – the artist’s grandfather.
