What to do

Porto for families and kids


Porto is the perfect destination for family vacations.

If you have children and want to spend some time with them, visit Porto and go to Parque da Cidade, the city’s “green lung” and the largest urban park in the country, where you can play with the wild ducks, water hens and rabbits that live there. 

Try riding a tram or bicycle through various parts of the city, the kids will love it.

If you prefer, go to the beach. Most of the beaches have surfing classes, which is a great opportunity to have a different and radical afternoon. 

Enjoy your stay in Porto by taking your family to Sea Life and experience the country’s first underwater tunnel where you can see sharks swimming above your head.

If you prefer a musical program, bring them to Casa da Música and take a guided tour of one of the masterpieces by architect Rem Koolhas.

Lastly, be sure to visit Serralves, which always has a full program for kids and adults.

Around Porto, there are other places of interest for experiencing unique moments with the family.

In Gaia, for example, you can feed the penguins at the Santo Inácio Zoo.
