Full description

Meet up with our guide at Living Tours – Tourist Service (at Street Mouzinho da Silveira, 352 – Porto), just next to São Bento train station – considered one of the most unique monuments of Porto!

Our Port Wine sunset rooftop walking tour will take you to the heart of the city, more precisely, to the imposing Aliados Avenue. This avenue was remodeled in 2006 by renowned Portuguese architect Alvaro Siza Vieira who also designed the city’s Serralves Museum. What a treasure!

Then we will continue to Clérigos Street for the first stop, passing through two of the most iconic Porto's monuments - the Clérigos Church and its Tower! We stop at a lounge bar where you can enjoy some music and your first drink, which will be a Port tawny. At the same time, take this opportunity to get closer to the city night views, a unique landscape over the most amazing buildings and monuments!

Made from selected wines for its softness and opulent character, it ages in oak barrels most of which are kept in wineries at the Douro Valley, whose grapes are exclusive in the production. The Port tawny wine got its name from an owl that lives in the UK and whose feathers are brown, almost brick which is the color that Port Wine takes when it ages in oak, developing a profile of nuts and caramel in the result of slow oxidation.

This unique experience continues to two famous rooftops. On the last viewpoint, you will enjoy the stunning views of the Douro river mouth and to taste a ruby Port wine. The Ruby Port is younger wine for being less time in the cask but, on the other hand, it is a wine that has retained more of its natural color, aromas, and sweet, fruity characteristics from the grapes.

For all of which, the ruby Port wine colors are more of a deep (ruby), the red fruits aromas predominate and it is full bodied in the mouth. 

Let's proceed to the Rua das Flores, an old street beautifully decorated with tiles, splendid balconies, and architecture.

Then this Porto walking tour continues to the other side of the river, passing the iconic iron bridge D. Luiz I, king of Portugal in the XIX century, you will discover a terrace located in Vila Nova de Gaia. This place will make you feel like the queen or king of the world with its stunning views over Porto's old town World Heritage Site and the six bridges of Porto.

On an elegant rooftop, another drink is waiting for you! A tonic Port that you can enjoy while hanging out with the locals and your fellow travelers! You can also get to know more information about the history and characteristics of Port wine with our expert guide.
