Why visit Porto?

Porto is one of the best European destinations. The city boasts astonishing modernity and an incredible architectural wealth. There is so much to discover during your stay: the famous Casa de Musica, the Stock Exchange Palace, the iconic gateway to the Douro Valley, etc. The local cultural heritage is sure to satisfy your desires for discovery and curiosity. The tourist sites are dazzling and authentic!

A team retreat in Porto promises to be rich in sensations. Indeed, the city offers a variety of team-building activities. A hike, segway, or bicycle ride will make a change from subway, bus, and taxi trips. Admire the Sé Cathedral from above and visit the city’s emblematic heritage sites with your colleagues. The city’s friendly atmosphere is conducive to relaxation and new discoveries. Venture to the quays of Vila Nova de Gaia to taste the prestigious local wines, then spend unforgettable evenings in Porto’s lively streets and chic bars.

2. What are the highlights of the city?

On this point, you will not be bored. Porto will show you all its colors, whether through its culture, gastronomy, or its natural and heritage richness. Discover the old city with your colleagues and admire the architectural beauty of Baroque churches, metallic bridges, and typical houses. Visit the city on foot or by bike in its myriad of colors. If you have a group of art enthusiasts, a visit to the city’s new museums will dazzle them. The Serralves Foundation of Contemporary Art and Casa de Musica are two essentials in terms of modern architecture.

Since you’re in Porto, don’t miss out on trying the tripas à la Moda do Porto, grilled octopus, and other local specialties. Take the opportunity to immerse yourself in exquisite Portuguese cuisine. Hire a local chef to learn how to cook the city’s specialties. To spice up your stay, organize a small cooking contest among colleagues. Divide into teams and hit the stoves for a timed contest. In addition to enjoying delicious dishes, you’ll invest in team spirit development within your company. To accompany your meals, treat yourself to the city’s best wines. Wine tasting is a must-do activity during a stay in Porto. Therefore, don’t hesitate to visit the symbolic cellars and magnificent vineyards. Beyond the aforementioned activities, take advantage of your stay to visit the Matosinhos fish market. For cooking, stock up on fresh and quality products there. In short, Porto is a true gem on the culinary map.

To enhance your offsite, do you prefer authentic activities that are out of the ordinary? If your group includes vintage car enthusiasts, a ride in a classic car will delight them. The icing on the cake, you can also go on a cruise with your colleagues on the Douro. Instead of luxurious cruise ships, the Rabelos, a wooden boat will welcome you, or discover the Peneda-Gerês park during a canyoning experience.
