Turn the page of the calendar and you may be surprised. It’s February already!
- Tired of waking up and not being in Porto? Or at a portuguese beach?
- Can’t stand the idea that a virus traveled more than you this year (and the last one)?
- Physically you are at home, drinking tea, wrapped in a blanket, but mentally you are in a portuguese Tasca eating a petisco and ordering your third glass of Port?
- Would you rather beat the winter blues in Porto?
- All you want for 2021 is… peace and travel?
We got you!
You miss traveling. Travel misses you too.
This may not be the recipe for peace and tranquillity everybody is looking for, but give it a try: grab your blanket, pour yourself a nice cup of tea and sat down to savor both the tea and the views.
What to do in Porto in February
#1 Start the day with a breath of fresh air directly into your screen
Ribeira is the most photogenic bit of Porto. Enjoy the scenery, breathe and stay fresh!
#2 Watch “Parts Unknown”
There’s no better way to find light during the dark times. “Parts Unknown” offers as much travel and cuisine as philosophy and it is always a good idea to rewatch Anthony Bourdain’s “Parts Unknown” in Porto in these times of reflection.
A very fond memory of our foodie adventures while hosting Anthony Bourdain in Porto.
#3 Plan your Porto dream itinerary
Searching and planning is part of the travel experience, not just the hassle before it. You are an explorer, a back door traveler. The torch is yours!

#5 Listen to the birds at the Botanical Garden in Porto
No matter the weather, we’re thankful for what a little time outdoors can do for the mind and soul. Fortunately, we’ll always have Jardim Botânico (Botanical Garden) to remind us to bloom with grace wherever life plants us. In case you want to learn a lot more about the flora of the world, this is the place to be.
When the time is right, we’ll be here.
