Porto

An outstanding cultural, economic and industrial center, Porto is the capital city and the “invincible city” of Northern Portugal. It is a place of great effervescence and enthusiasm. Join the Porto Marathon this November! Here is an advice if you want to feel alive in Portugal this late-autumn!

November is not a bad month for traveling, though the weather seems a bit unappealing and after the summer holidays are long lost and forgotten, we’ve already settled comfortably into the monotonous routine of “all work and no fun”. But on the other hand, for all those who know the importance of traveling smart, there is a low cost travel option available… in November! Tickets and services for most anything are by at least 30% cheaper in November, so it’s actually a good time to take a few days off.

And while you are visiting the beautiful Porto city, on November 6th, you can join the greatest local event of the month: the Porto Marathon. Running is healthy, so residents do this often. The marathon is an annual event which invites you to run from the bank of Douro all the way to the city center along with a group of merry, healthy and athletic new friends.

Painting seems to be a good occupation for November 2016 in Porto. You can attend the Elementary Drawing Courses on November 4th at the Porto University, Belles Artes Faculty. The same venue hosts a Practical Course in Painting on November 7th, as a continuation for the various other courses offered to the public this month.

And if you want to make a name for yourself in the business industry, you are invited to stop by the BNI LION Business Reunion on November 2nd at the Aviz Trade Center, Porto.

One thing is for sure, though: you are going to need a way to get to all these events fast and safe. Our suggestions are Porto taxi transfers and Porto car rental, always available for booking online.

A literary moment in Porto

A literary moment in Porto

What better thing to do on a rainy day that enjoy a literary moment in Porto? We’ll teach you how and where in a moment!

November is here and winter is coming, even in sunny, happy Portugal, so we need a backup plan for rainy, cold (or well, coldish) days. Do you know what I like to do on such days? Well, if I can, I sleep late.

But when I’ve had enough sleep, I grab a good book, curl up back in bed and start reading for the sake of reading. But what happens when: 1. I’m in Porto and 2. I have no book to read? Well, if both conditions are satisfied, I take a walk to Lello Bookshop. Porto is renowned for its stunning, old architecture – which has earned it a well-deserved spot on the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list. And it so happens that one such example of stunning architecture is this bookshop, widely regarded as one of the most beautiful in the world.

Lello Bookshop is housed in a historical building, an eclectic mixture with a neo Gothic interior and an Art Nouveau exterior. As you enter, you will be invaded by the smell of book and the air of literature. This is a corner of heaven for every bookish library mouse (and human). And everyone is invited to come. The facade is covered in real marble and the inside is dominated by a giant spiral staircase that will remind you of Hogwarts and Harry Potter and his friends.

I could spend hours in the bookshop without getting bored. I am a declared library mouse, though.

I’d usually get a car in Porto, but another favorite option to get to Lello Bookshop is to book online a Porto taxi, which can be so comfortable and elegant.
