There is no such thing as "the best time" to visit Porto, because this city is wonderful at any season.

February can be cold and rainy, but our winters are not very rough! There is no snow and most importante of all: the cloudy skies and the grey atmosphere makes this gothic city even more romantic.

Be sure to bring warm clothes and umbrella, and don't plan in staying in your Hotel room! Visit the Porto Tourism website and get inspired.


We have two main means of transportation: bus and metro. Our metro system is quite big! It crosses the whole city and a good amount of buses.

The simplest ticket is the blue Andante card, which alows you to enter both Metro and Bus, plus lets you pay per journey. The key thing to know about this card is that it gives you access to all transports in town (even tram!) and you only need to charge it before using it.

Just remember: All cards must be validated every time you get on board, and at any change of vehicle.
