DH and I off for 4 days at the end of the month. Anyone been recently who has any specific recommendations of places to go/see/eat?

(We're not into clubbing/karaoke, or long hikes/climbs, but like to see the sights and eat/drink well)

Muu Restaurant. We had possibly the best meal we’ve ever had here and it was so reasonable compared to London. But you must book.

We did the Graham’s port tour and tasting and that was a real highlight of the trip.

Zenith was by far the best brunch we found. Do Norte was also great. The World of Wine had a gorgeous roof terrace where you can have brunch or just drinks in the afternoon.

Uber is super cheap so we used it to get around lots as the hills are an absolute killer!

No idea, i've never been but I did watch the Travel Man episode on it yesterday. It has some high bridges and apparently the kids just used to walk up them, then skate board down. It definitely gave me the wobbles ha ha considering they were on safety ropes.

Not sure how long you're there but the Douro Valley is stunning. Also a great place for a port tour. We went to Sandemans.

We're there for two proper days - a day either side travelling - so a bit of a flying visit really
