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.

Pasteis de Nata Workshop + home dinner

This evening was a perfect choice! We suddenly became members of a portugal family, we enjoyed the work with Patricia and the dinner in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Out of the turistic vibes that experience gave a real hint of Portugal.

See Porto Through an Architect Eyes

We can definately recommand this activity with Duarte. He's a very kind guy with a passion for architecture. During his tour he took us to special places where we otherwise wouldn't have come. His know-how about Porto and his buildings is great, we loved his stories. So, don't hesitate to contact Duarte and book this tour! We've had a very nice time.

A customized trip with Joao

Joao dedicated his life to art and knows many of the graffiti- and street artists in Porto personally. He did not only show me around the most beautiful parts of Porto but gave me a little lesson in art, Portuguese history, graffiti and street art techniques as well. On top of that he is just a really cool guy to explore the city with. Every little piece of art has a story and Joao knows pretty much all of them.
I don't think you could find anyone fit better to show you around and tell those stories of the city.
