Climate in Porto

Compared to other European destinations, Porto is a city off the beaten path – but that does not mean it rates less than Paris or Rome. If you are looking for natural landscape, rich history, architecture, culture, good food, romance and amazing people, then Porto is the place for you.

One of the factors that makes Porto such a remarkable place to visit is its being an all-season destination for tourists. It generally has a Mediterranean climate with summers that are hot and dry and cold, rainy winters. However, there is quite a distinction about the temperatures between these two seasons. On the average, summer temperatures peak at 25° C (77° F), but have been known to reach 35° C (95° F). Temperatures in winter on the average reach 13° C (55.4° F) and rarely go lower.

The Best Time to Visit Lisbon

If you are a bit sensitive about temperature changes, it pays to learn about the climate in Porto. Here are some facts that you need to know:

  • From June to October, you can expect average temperature, up to 35° C (95° F)
  • January, February, March, April, October, November and December are expected to be rainy, with December being the coolest and wettest month, with an average of 180mm of rain. If you want to experience less humidity, a trip in January or February is better than a December holiday.
  • Porto has dry periods in July and August, with July being the driest month and August being the warmest month. Some tourists might feel some discomfort during these months because humidity is low during summertime. However, the breezes that come from the Atlantic Ocean can surely help relieve the heat and discomfort you might feel.
  • If you want to enjoy Porto beaches like Espinho, Praia dos Ingleses, Praia Castelo do Queijo, Miramar and Matosinhos, you better schedule a visit in September, when the average sea temperature is 18° C (65° F) making it the most ideal month for fun and frolicking in the water.

The Essentials of Porto Tour: Must Sees & Highlights

We met Nuno at the Lion Fountain about an hour after we landed in Porto after 24 hours of travel from Canada and we had the best introduction to Porto and Portugal we could have asked for. Nuno is very well versed in the history and architecture of the city, we learned so much while at the same time were kept interested and engaged the whole time. Along the way he pointed out great places to grab a beer and enjoy some live music, places to enjoy traditional meals and tapas, and introduced us to some traditional pastries. He also lead us down streets and pointed out statues and buildings we wouldn’t have given a second glance. I would highly recommend Nuno on any tour, his love for the city is contagious and it kickstarted our trip on a high note. He is also full of answers to any questions you may have and was willing to stop and take a 10 minute coffee break or add/remove certain stops depending on your needs. Thank you Nuno for such an amazing tour! You gave us so much knowledge we could have never gained from any book or website. We had so much fun!

Cool Street Art Tour in Porto

João is incredibly knowledgable about the street art scene in Porto and you can tell it’s a passion of his. I spent a very enjoyable Sunday morning excited loving the city with him with my two friends and I’d highly recommend it. Porto streets ate full of amazing art pieces that are far too easy to miss without a guide ... Joãos tour is a must do in Porto
