porto, portugal

i have a deep love for old european cities and porto is right up my alley. the old part of the city in absolutely breathtaking and i could honestly spend days just wandering through the streets staring in awe.

we spent a day in porto, along the douro river, strolling and tasting some port along the way. climbed up the hill first to taylor’s for some really delicious port (best we had), and also had lunch at their restaurant (okay food, really nice view). on our way back down the hill were lured into quevedo which didn’t seem very put together and the port was not good, at all. and finally had a taste at vasconcellos, right on the waterfront, where we each bought a bottle to take home.

crossed the bridge to the old part of the city and walked along the douro where we stopped at peter’s cafe sport for an afternoon drink, and had a decent dinner (with awful service) at one of the touristy waterfront restaurants, chez lapin.
