Ports

Vigo is a coastal city in Galicia, Spain, close to the Portugese border. Stroll along the charming streets, hidden just behind the busy port; climb up to the castro Fortress for an unforgettable view of the Vigo Bay or take a day trip to the Cíes Islands. Visit O Berbés, a fishing neighborhood, where you can buy the fresh seafood and relax on Playa de Samíl.

Porto, located on the Costa Verde, is Portugal's second-largest city and a busy port town. Porto's long and varied history has left many beautiful old buildings that you can discover by walking around the 'Ribeira' – the old city centre that is a World Heritage site. City walks can be demanding as Porto is built in the coastal hills, but that also means that each corner offers a new, exciting vista! And you can always cool your heels on Porto's rustic terraces and vibrant street side cafés.
