THE PERFECT DAY: The Perfect Day in Porto
A decade ago it wasn’t so easy to fall in love with Porto. The streets downtown were deserted at night, and a scarcity of cultural activities would keep you home. Today it’s quite the opposite.
Porto is famous for its wine, and you’re only a 20-minute walk from Taylor’s Port Wine Cellars. To get there you have to cross Ponte Dom Luis I, heading toward Vila Nova de Gaia. Once you’ve crossed the bridge, walk along the river bank. You’ll see a sign that reads Taylor’s in the corner of Espaço Porto Cruz. Climb the narrow, uphill Rua do Choupelo until you find Taylor’s. For 12 euros you’ll get an audio tour and a tasting of at least two kinds of port wine. This is pretty typical of Porto wine tastings. What distinguishes Taylor’s is the stunning balcony, which showcases the city in 180 degrees.
