Where To Stay In Porto? Porto Neighbourhood Guide

Porto Streets

When it comes to deciding where to stay in Porto and thinking about the areas in Porto, the best option for a first time visitor is definitely Porto city centre. Within the city centre, you have the Ribeira, Baixa, Se and other surrounding Porto neighbourhoods.

The Ribeira is the riverside neighbourhood with picturesque buildings and a lively atmosphere. There are lots of restaurants and shops, but it is quite touristy.

Baixa and Se are neighbourhoods just above the Ribeira that are home to lots of restaurants, shops and things to do.

Staying across the other side of the river at Vila Nova de Gaia is also a great option. Here you will be close to all the Port Cellars, there’s a beautiful park with stunning views of Porto and a lively riverside area. If you stay near the river, it’s also only a short walk across the bridge to Porto centre or there is the metro.
