Porto is a city full of life and activity, with an enormous monumental, artistic and cultural heritage, with its tile panels, its imposing churches, its old buildings and its bridges designed by Gustave Eiffel.
The Ribeira district, with its quay and its symbiosis of narrow streets full of houses, tiles and extended clothes, was considered as one of the most beautiful areas in the world.
Porto is located on the right bank of the Douro River, and in a frontal position on the left bank is the city of Gaia, where the famous Port Wine cellars are located. These two cities are connected by six bridges, famous for their architecture, which can also be appreciated, from a different angle and perspective, through a boat trip along the Douro River, where in times the Rabelo boats transported and docked the kites from the slopes of the Douro vineyards to Gaia,  where the wine rested, at the ideal temperature in the cellars.
