Beautiful mosaic tilled townhouse buildings, cobblestone streets and that ever-present vibe of Hogwarts ;). Porto is one of the most charming places, not too overcrowded and full of quaint shops, restaurants and bars that we thoroughly enjoyed finding. I took great pleasure in the fact that university students here looked much like those described in the Harry Potter series (cape and all), and I was delighted to be able to visit Livraria Lello, the famous bookshop from which you can obviously tell Hogwarts was born. But the best thing about Porto definitely had to be the port. Visiting those port wine cellars, trying to look and sound as sophisticated as possible....until we reached the tasting portion of the (multiple) tours, where our true colours came out, and then sauntering back home in the winter downpour....priceless.
