After mentioning to some friends we were traveling to Portugal, we were told multiple times that we must visit the city of Porto. I quickly did some research and found that it was a riverfront city full of colorful buildings, a pretty famous bridge, and home to port wine. There’s not much that could go wrong with this scenario, so off we went. We continued our road trip north, stopping first at Aveiro (which I will explain at the bottom of the post because it’s just not as exciting!) and then Porto, Portugal’s second largest city.
