We take the public bus from a stop just outside the marina gate to the City of Porto, the home of Port Wine.

As we had only a day we took the Hop On / Hop Off tour bus to get an overview of the City.  We "hopped off" in the winery district and took a cable car ride, had a waterfront meal and wine tasting.

A beautiful historical city.  We would like to return to get to know it better.

Most of the city is high above the river.

Laundry day.

We descend by Cable Car. Sandra's not a fan.

Sandra recovers from Cable Car ride.

Excellent food, but over twice the cost of  our lunch in Leixoes.

Historic Port Wine transport boats.

Tomorrow the Olympics?

Another Eiffel bridge.

Tile decoration is used extensively.

Cool old street cars still in use.
