  1. we love your videos, we will be in Porto on a cruise and would like to see some of your recommendations, how far is the port where we get off the ship to the town center?

    • Hi Bob, the cruise terminal is quite far from the centre of Porto, it is actually located in a different town called Matosinhos. You can take tram line A near the cruise terminal to get to you the centre of Porto. The tram stop is a 10-minute walk from the cruise terminal. If you use Google Maps, it will show you the location.
