1. Intercontinental Hotel Porto.  The intercontinental suite was amazing. We have an ambassador card well worth the investment as your room is always upgraded so our suite was amazing!  The weekend was so special, with lay ins in luxury and a late night jazz bar.

2. Walking around all the architecture.  When we are away even with kids, or on a date weekend we love just walking around.  Life has a different pace just taking the cultures, people, smells and architecture in. Porto has this amazing blue and white tile work.

 The blue tiling facade which is everywhere and just gorgeous

7. River tour.  We did the 6 bridges river tour, just relaxed back and soaked in the atmosphere. The  buildings were interesting as you could see the lack of funds to invest or renovate, but there was still so much beauty in the place. 

 The 6 bridges boat tour where you get to see the buildings in their full beauty, but can see the renovation needed.

9. Tour of Porto we took the bus tour and in some ways got to see the whole of porto, in others it was such a short weekend, we wish we would have stopped a bit more between stops especially the beach,

 The bus tour took us past beaches and fishing men.
