Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport- Porto Airport

The major destination for flights to and from the city is Porto’s airport, Francisco Sá Carneiro. It was ranked Europe’s top three airports numerous times and is an efficient way to get to other parts of Portugal by plane or to the rest of the world. The modern layout of the airport is very well-organized and signs will help you find out where you’re supposed to be. The building is made up of three floors, with the arrivals hall on the ground floor and departures on the third. Hungry? You can grab lunch or dinner at the many restaurants available here, including a traditional Portuguese one among others. WiFi is available throughout the airport as well and unlike some, this Porto airport gives you free unlimited access so you can stay occupied while you wait to board the plane! This airport is also extremely convenient for either those that have leftover money to exchange or those who just arrived! The airport is equipped with a full service bank, ATMS and a Currency Exchange in the arrival halls. For those that completely forgot to buy a souvenir for their special someone, there are plenty of opportunities to still do some serious shopping at the Duty-free shops. Expect book shops and clothing boutiques as well.

Pasteis de Nata Workshop + home dinner

What a nice afternoon we’ve had! We felt an immense hospitality, ate a really good meal, had inspiring and enjoyable talks and baked delightful pasteis de nata! Patricia provided even gluten free foods and pasteis so I could also enjoy all the food, although I have a serious gluten intolerance. A very nice activity, our daughters and we loved it!

Family Cooking Masterclass: Portuguese Specialties!

Vera is the perfect host and chef for a master cooking class for children. She has a good sense of humor, is very open and friendly, and has a lot of knowledge and a great passion for Portuguese food. All this she shares more than willingly with us. The kids just loved it! We really felt like going local being invited to her home and experiencing her food and hospitality.
