"Why not try a glass of the local Port wine whilst visiting the cellars? The local cuisine is also well worth tasting, as it is rich and varied, from Francesinha (a meaty sandwich with spicy tomato sauce) to grilled sardines. In Vila Nova de Gaia, it is possible to walk along the riverside until you reach the sea. If you are looking for culture and nightlife, then head in to Porto, just a quick metro ride away. If you come in June, you will be able to see an incredible firework display for Saint John´s day, without even leaving the apartment! "
