Pedal through Porto’s Old Town
Picturesque Porto is the pinnacle of Portuguese port city charm. As the home of port wine and some of Portugal’s oldest churches, the sightseeing opportunities in this city are rich. The Porto City E-Bike Tour covers the best of them in just a few hours, all from the comfort of your electric bike saddle. Stops include Porto Cathedral, Aliados Avenue, Gomes Teixeira Square, Livrario Lello, Cândido dos Reis and Galerias Paris streets, Cordoaria Garden, Clérigos Church and Tower, Ribeira Square, and Luís I Bridge.
Stop at Porto Cathedral to admire an amalgamation of centuries of sacred architecture, with its Gothic, Baroque, and Renaissance features. Cycle on to São Bento Railway Station, built on the site of a former monastery, where hand-painted azulejos tiles adorn the atrium, depicting stories of Porto’s past.
This bicycle tour also stops at Aliados Avenue, Porto’s largest avenue and central square, where the residents of Porto gather for important public events. Cycle along this stately street and absorb the relaxed pace of life enjoyed by the residents who sit in the cafes’ terraces, sipping coffee and watching the world go by under the shade of historic Beaux-Art buildings.
Your bike tour stops in Gomes Teixeira Square to admire this expansive, pedestrianized space where the public fountain burbles, before riding on to Livrario Lello. Here, you’ll stop at one of the oldest book shops in Portugal and one of the most beautiful in the world. Stained glass windows, spiral staircases, and floor-to-ceiling bookshelves make this shop a haven for book lovers and architectural aficionados alike.
Your city tour then rides through Cândido dos Reis and Galerias Paris streets, an area of Porto that has been recently transformed into a hub of the very best restaurants and bars by night, while the Art Nouveau architecture draws visitors by day. You’ll also stop in Cordoaria Garden, a lush green space in the center of Porto, adorned with statues of famous Portuguese figures.
Cycling on, your guide will recount the history of Clérigos Church and its 75 meter-high tower, built in the 18th century as one of the first Baroque churches in Portugal. Ride on to Ribeira Square, located in Porto’s historic heart, where you’ll find traditional houses and shopping arcades, as well as a monumental three-storey fountain and contemporary cube statue, which has earned the square the nickname of ‘Praça do Cubo’ by local residents.
Round off your pedal-powered Porto day tour with a stop at Luís I Bridge, a monumental, double-level metal construction that spans the Douro and transports cars, trains, and pedestrians over the river. With the added ease of e-bikes, this guided tour ensures you experience Porto’s historic charm and sightseeing highlights with ultimate comfort and efficiency.
