A long weekend in Porto

On the eve of the long Easter weekend, Clio Goldbrenner's team have put together the best places to visit in Porto, Portugal. This is the city where our Achille trainers are made.

Brunch at O Diplomata

A well-known place where locals go for brunch. An original menu and made-to-order pancakes that can be plain, with fresh fruit or even vegan. Simple, healthy and delicious!

Wandelen op rua da Miguel Bombarda

Een straat vol kunstgaleries, gekleurde muren en leven. Leuke tip voor design en moderne kunst.

Lose yourself in the Livraria Lello

Whether you like books or not, this neo-gothic bookshop is worth taking a detour to visit. Livraria Lello is one of the most beautiful bookshops in the world. Go upstairs and enjoy a coffee.

Order tea at the Cafe Majestic

Enjoy a port tasting in the cellars at Vila Nova de Gaia

You can't go to Porto without visiting the cellars at Vila Nova de Gaia located on the other side of the river. This is a good opportunity to cross over the Dom Luis Bridge which is UNESCO listed as a World Heritage site. Try Taylor’s cellar which is considered to be one of the most prestigious.

Enjoy a drink at sunset at Espaço Porto Cruz

A lounge terrace with a 360° view over Porto. A perfect place to enjoy a drink and take in the whole view of the city! What’s more, there’s live music in the evening.

Tuck into tapas at Cantina 32

A trendy restaurant that serves original local cuisine. There's a wide choice and it's really worth a visit just to see the decor!
