Dom Luís I Bridge
Your stay in Porto isn’t complete if you haven’t visited the other side of Douro river, where Vila Nova de Gaia stands majestically. This town is full of ancient wineries and it’s defined by Dom Luís I Bridge and topped by the great Serra do Pilar monastery-fortress.
During our Tour of Gaia we will show you the history of this town, which gives its name to the country along with Porto. We will cross Dom Luís I Bridge upper part, which has superb views, get to Serra do Pilar and Jardim do Morro and descend through the beautiful viewpoints until we reach the emblematic boardwalk of Gaia. There we will stroll among wineries and Rabelo boats as we tell countless stories about wine and get a taste for what’s coming next.
We will visit one of Porto’s famous wineries and do both a guided tour inside and taste two different Porto wines.
After trying the wine we will resume our tour in order to know Gaia’s art legacy, from the great baroque architect Nasoni to one of the most famous street art exhibitions in Portugal: Bordalo II Half Rabbit. We will also visit Beira Río traditional market and show you the relationship between Gaia and the greatest Portuguese love stories.
