As the second-largest city in Portugal, Porto is not only home to passionate football fans and its higgledy-piggledy medieval centre, but also to its world-renowned bars, which offer an array of fantastic places to sample the city’s drink namesake, Porto; the Portuguese fortified wine that is both sweet and strong.
