The seaside isn’t far away from Porto. Head to nearby Foz de Douro, at the river mouth, or Matosinhos, for fish and seafood restaurant­s, or the fishing town of Espinho, famous for its prawns and brightly painted wooden boats.

Boat trips along the Douro offer another perspectiv­e on Porto, and a private charter with a group of friends cruising for two hours costs considerab­ly less than in other major cities.

An iced white port and tonic is the perfect drink on a hot day. If drinking local lager Super Bock, remember: small glasses mean colder beer.
