Porto

 

Porto, with 300 000 inhabitants, is the second largest city in Portugal. The heart of an area of great vitality, with a population of 1.2 million, Porto is the ideal gateway for discovering the North of Portugal.

Porto is located 300 Km north of Lisbon and its magnificent coastline is bathed by the Atlantic Ocean. The Douro River that flows into the sea at Porto, is a major waterway linking the city to all points eastward, as far as the Spanish border.

Climate

Porto has a very mild year-round climate.

Accessibility

Portugal is a signatory to the Schengen Agreement and is therefore bound by the EU regulations governing the free circulation of people.
Located 300 kms north of Lisbon, all major airlines such as Iberia, Air France, Lufthansa, Ryanair, Air Berlin, Luxair and SN Brussels connect Porto to all European Capitals. TAP and PGA (Portugália), the national carriers, both have offices in most European capitals and offer regular direct flights to Porto. Additional connections via Lisbon are made easier thanks to multiple daily flights between the two cities.
Porto's International Airport is located 15 kms away from the city centre to which it is connected by a Bus Shuttle, by taxi and by bus. 


Two railway stations provide 3 daily international trains to Paris, via Madrid,
and several daily trains to Lisbon.
