Porto in Portugal

Sue and I went to Porto in Portugal to celebrate her birthday. Porto is Portugal's second city and the home of the Port industry. It's a remarkably beautiful town and I'm surprised it isn't better known. Indeed, I'd rate Porto alongside the major European cities of London, Paris, Amsterdam and Berlin.

Porto is also a friendly town. Some drivers stopped for us while we were taking a photograph across the road; they didn't want to spoil the view.
