The Douro River is one of the biggest tourist attractions in the city. Now, if a hotel allows you to wake up almost on top of the water, it is likely to be considered as one of the best. This is the case of the Pestana Vintage Porto & World Heritage Site, which is located in the historical square of Ribeira and, therefore, with the river right at its edge.
There’s no bigger luxury than waking up overlooking a river. And the Douro is no ordinary one – it’s one of the major rivers in the Iberian Peninsula. So a hotel with a privileged view to the river is always a good bet – especially because that Instagram isn’t going to fill itself with swoon worthy photos of your stay. There aren’t many options, but we promise they all have quality. Be sure to invite someone special to enjoy the view with you.
