What will we do on the Photography Holiday in Porto?
Porto, also known as the City of Bridges, is one of Europe’s oldest cities. Elements of the city date all the way back to 300 BC and its architecture is influenced by multiple cultures that have settled there in the last two thousand years.
The region is famous for the production of Port, which is made exclusively in the Douro Valley along the river of the same name.
Earlier this year, Porto was named The Best European Destination by the Best European Destinations Agency, so it is an excellent holiday destination. But more than that, it is a wonderful photography opportunity.
The city is filled with so much history and life that you can almost point your camera in any direction and capture something interesting or historical.
