What to see and do and where to visit in Porto with your hire car

Let’s make a quick tour of the Portuguese city. We have thought of an easy itinerary you can do with your car hire in Oporto. You’ll see how easy and fun it will be.

Porto is unreservedly spectacular. Many believe it to be a small town, but its size is magnified due to the many things that you can see and do on your visit. In addition, we are also talking about the second largest city in Portugal, so take advantage of your visit and let’s start to make our way around the beautiful neighbourhoods.

It will be very helpful to rent a car in Porto as this will allow us to travel from one district to another really easily. We recommend that you begin with the ‘Barrio de La Ribera’ which is not to be missed, along the banks of the Duero, a sleepy fisherman’s village with its small bars where you can have a drink.

Take advantage of the proximity of the area and visit the colourful houses of the ‘Barrio de Miragaia’, a very interesting place and a good choice to stay.

We continue with our car hire in Oporto and we go to ‘Baixa’, the centre of the city, the heart of Porto, near to the ‘Avenida de los Aliados’ and the main streets of the city.

There are many different districts in Porto, some very elegant, but we may not have time to visit them all, but don’t leave without seeing the ‘Bairro das Artes’ which has become very popular due to its galleries, shops and café bars.

Visits & tours to the city of Porto 

Once you have decided to hire a car in Porto you will find it easy to mover around, especially if you choose any of the recommended organised tours to get to know the city.

Park the car for a little while and walk around by foot. You can also take the tourist bus so you can get to the main streets of the city and you can take a few photographs

Another choice is to take an organised tour so that you can get to know every part of the city, but be aware that these can last nearly 8 hours. You don’t get to walk a lot, half of the time they show you the most famous tourist attraction sites in Porto, like the ‘Mercado do Bolhao’ (market), the ‘Torre dos Clérigos’, the ‘Barrio Da Sé’ , etc.,

You are also offered the possibility to go on a cruise along the river Duero and to end the tour you are offered a wine tasting which as you know, in Porto, wine is sacred!

If you like more rural tourism, you can hire your car in Porto, connect your GPS and choose a route for example to the ‘Valle del Duero’ from Porto. This is definitely worth it. You can visit local farms and take in a wine tasting tour in Oporto to also include local dishes. What a great plan!

This is a must-see place if you want to see one of the most beautiful and unique areas of this Portuguese city.

When you are here, we recommend that you also visit the ‘Torre de los Clérigos’, which is without a doubt one of the most amazing monuments in Porto.

We head to the ‘Lello’ bookshop, chosen by The Guardian newspaper as the Third most beautiful bookstore in the world.  We believe, without a doubt that it is the best on the planet!

There are many different areas to see of the beautiful city of Porto and for this Reason we recommend that you hire a car in Porto so that you can see as much of it as you can.
