Porto city walk and port wine tasting.

We had a good day for a city walk around Porto with a wine tasting at the end. Porto is really busy with lots and lots of tourists competing with lots of construction in the center of the city. We walked through the city streets and saw many shops, including a McDonald’s which Had chandeliers in it. We also saw the coffee shop. We are J. K. Rowling spent time writing The Hobbit, and the line was really, really long to get in there. We also went to the city train station, which was impressive and showed off some of the blue tile work that is famous from the area. We ended our tour with a port wine tasting, and the port we had was much better than the port we used to have. The weather was great and we enjoyed our day.
We ended the night with a gathering of Facebook and cruise critic Viking fans and a chef’s table tasting of the best halibut I’ve ever had.
A beautiful sunset capped everything off.
