What is the best time of year to visit Porto?
Porto has a wonderful climate year-round, with temperatures regularly around 15° even in the middle of winter. But this mild weather is often accompanied by rain. 11 days of it in December, and as many in January. But the rain goes away as the weather begins to warm up in April. That’s when you can best enjoy floating down the Douro, climbing to the top of the city, and sitting out on the terraces of Ribeira. When temperatures get really hot, the Portuguese take shelter in the Matosinhos district. Some head for the air-conditioned aisles of Norte Shopping, the nicest shopping centre in Portugal. Others lay out on the wide sandy beaches. Want to add a little spice to your trip? Head for Porto the 23 June and take part in São João, the biggest party in the country. Everyone is in the streets! Another event not to miss: the Essência do Vinho wine show in February, with more than 400 wine makers from around the country. Incredibly festive and indulgent!
