Life in Porto

Soon after your arrival, you will fall in love with the Mediterranean climate and the warmth of the people. The hospitality of the Portuguese as well as a large expat community will allow you to quickly make friends. Away from the hustle and bustle and just a short walk from the waterfront, lies the Fontainhas ("Little Fountains" in Portuguese) neighbourhood. Here, we find ourselves in the midst of small side streets, street caf├ęs and antique shops. Regional restaurants and bars invite you to take a relaxed lunch break.
