ESMADRID MAGAZINE    ES MADRID.COM

Spend three nights exploring the Spanish capital with this summer city break to Madrid. Shop till you drop with 2 checked bags included!

 

Madrid is often overlooked for a city break but actually it probably has more to offer than most of it’s European counterparts. Take a guided tour of the Royal Palace, arguably one of the largest and most beautiful palaces in Europe. Enjoy a coffee on the Plaza Mayor, Madrid’s main square, it is a great place to people watch and plan your day. Follow that with a night out in the city, when Madrid comes alive with gastro bars and vibrant nightlife. With over three thousand restaurants, it is not surprising that Madrid is now considered one of Europe’s top cities for gastronomy.

There is plenty of things to do in Madrid to keep everyone happy. As well as sightseeing, Madrid is a great city for shopping.  A stroll along the Gran Via, Madrid’s grandest street, is a shoppers paradise, where high street and designer shops combine to tempt you with prices cheaper than at home. This super deal includes 2 x 23kg checked bags, so you can literally shop till you drop! The apple store with a 360 degrees genius bar, where experts from ‘Apple’ give advice and solve any technical issues. It is known as a ‘little apple museum’ and worth a look in the area of Puerta del Sol!
 

 

 

Madrid is also famous for it’s soccer team. Football fans may be disappointed that there are no matches scheduled during the summer, but a stadium tour of Real Madrid’s Bernabeu, is a great alternative.

So with all of this and a lot more, isn’t it time you booked a city break to Madrid? I have found a great deal departing on the August bank holiday weekend. Fly from Dublin to Madrid on Friday the 2nd of August and enjoy a three night stay in the popular HRC hotel, for only €228. This modern hotel is situated in the heart of Madrid, close to all the main attractions and it’s excellent nightlife.
 

 

 
What I love about this deal is that you will be flying on Ethiopian Airlines dreamliner aircraft. Not only is this a superb way to fly but you will receive a full in-cabin service with drinks and have 2 x 23kg bags per person included in the price! Sounds like the best excuse to go shopping to me!

Weekend In Porto, 3 Nights, Flights & 4-Star Hotel, 3rd October, €259!

Porto

Porto is one of the oldest cities in Europe and has a medieval feel to it. Why not choose some where different for a city break and try a weekend in Porto.

 

We enjoyed a weekend in Porto last year and loved it!  This city looks almost medieval with colourful buildings everywhere, I was genuinely amazed at how beautiful the city was. The Ribeira district is a Unesco World Heritage site and is full of local wine bars, restaurants and colourful buildings close to the waterfront. Enjoy a glass of wine or a meal by the river and soak up the atmosphere, for a fraction of what you would pay at home. In fact Porto of late has become one of Europe’s top food destinations.
 

 

 
You wont find any celebrity restaurants here, but lots of local eateries serving traditional Portuguese food, at rock bottom prices. Renowned as the birthplace of port, there are also numerous port houses offering tastings and tours. There are plenty of good places to go at night time too, with bands playing in various venues across the city.

Read why you should choose Porto for your next city break here.

I found a great deal staying in the 4-star Hotel da Música. Located in the iconic Mercado do Bom Sucesso building, which is now home to Porto’s re-invented food market, this hotel is modern in design, yet surrounded by tradition. Enjoy a glass of port in the Pavarotti Bar and don’t miss Sunday brunch in Restaurant Bom Sucesso. Highly rated on TripAdvisor, this is a great option for a weekend in Porto.

porto

Porto is one of the oldest cities in Europe! Why not choose some where different for a city break this year and try a weekend in Porto – you won’t be disappointed.

 

I spent the October Bank holiday weekend in Porto last year and loved it!  This medieval city is full of colourful buildings, I was genuinely amazed at how beautiful the Porto was. The Ribeira district is a Unesco World Heritage site and is full of local wine bars, restaurants and old buildings close to the waterfront. Enjoy a glass of wine or a meal by the river, and soak up the atmosphere, for a fraction of what you would pay at home. In fact Porto of late has become one of Europe’s top food destinations.

weekend in Porto

Porto is not all about food and wine though. No visit would be complete without seeing the Se Cathedral, Saõ Francisco church and Clérigos Tower. You will also be drawn to the many churches with blue tiles that are scattered throughout the city. Like all cities there is a great shopping street and let’s not forget Porto is beside the coast, so if you dont fancy a boat trip along the Douro River, why not spend the day at the beach, which is only 15 minutes from the centre of Porto.  For more information read my blog on why you need to choose Porto for your next city break.

I found a great deal staying in the 4* Porto Cinema apartments. Highly rated on tripadvisor and centrally located, this is a great choice to explore all that Porto has to offer.  Fly from Dublin on the 26th of October and enjoy a three night stay here for only €259 per person!

Choose Porto For Your Next City Break – Porto Travel Guide

porto

A UNESCO World Heritage site, full of colourful buildings, delightful streets, with a great food and wine scene – choose Porto for your next city break.

As well as being a beautiful city offering excellent value for money, Porto is easily accesible. After a short 2 hour 20 minute flight from Dublin, I settled in quickly and was looking forward to exploring this charming city.

Considering Porto is Portugal’s second largest city, it is surprisingly underrated. It was voted Best European Destination this year, but not many people seem to know that. Perhaps that’s not a bad thing. I’m sure once the word gets out, it will no longer be €2.50 for a glass of wine along the Ribeira (Porto’s equivalent to Venice’s St Mark’s Square).
 

 

 
Although there are many magnificent churches and landmarks to see, what I loved most about Porto was wandering around its colourful streets. 

Porto

Porto’s colourful buildings:

On our first morning we woke to blue skies and warm sunshine – the perfect combination to really appreciate this colourful city.  The first thing that stuck me was how compact the city was, and within minutes we were crossing the famous Dom Luis bridge.
 

 

 
This offers the picture postcard view of the Ribeira – Porto’s colourful riverside promenade, which is packed with shops, bars and restaurants. We found ourselves stopping constantly to take photos, each one better than the next. We were lucky to have blue skies to help us, but I do believe it must be impossible to take a bad photograph of this view.


While the Ribeira district has an endless display of colourful buildings, these can also be found throughout the city. Many buildings are covered in vibrant azulejos (hand-painted tiles) to give a dramatic look to this old city. Even the metro stations have walls covered in tiles, and many of Porto’s famous churches – Saõ Francisco, Saint Illdefonso and Capela Das Almas, have blue azulejos, Porto is an Instagrammers dream!


 

 

 

Top things to see in Porto:

When we crossed the Dom Luis bridge we arrived in the pretty town of  Vila Nova de Gaia, on the opposite side of the Douro river. An array of Portuguese restaurants greeted us, as well a wide selection of port cellars offering tastings. If you want to try some Port, this is the place to do it. 
 

 

 
Guia is also the best place to take a short cable car ride, as well as a river cruise along the Douro river. If the weather is good, the boat trip is a nice way to chill out for an hour, but you can get similar views from the shore. We spent a full morning in Guia before walking back across the bridge to Porto.

porto

The Sé Cathedral is located in the heart of the old town and is definitely worth a visit. Construction started in the 12th century but it wasn’t finished until 1737, the result is many different types of architecture come together for a unique effect.
 

 

 
The Saõ Francisco church was one of my personal favourites. Don’t be put off by the mundane exterior, once you step inside, you find a lavish interior that is completely covered in gold. We were not allowed to take photographs inside but you will have to trust me – don’t miss it! Not only is the church itself magnificent but the catacombs in the basement are worth exploring too.

porto

Another highlight for me was climbing the Clérigos Tower, one of Portugal’s tallest towers. We did have to wait in line for 45 minutes, but the view from the top was worth it. It has a narrow spiral staircase, that felt a little claustrophobic, but the climb itself isn’t too taxing. There are also lots of openings in the wall on the way to the top, which show off the red roofs of Porto in the optimum way.

After visiting most of the highlights on our first day, we chose to relax on day two and just enjoy the city. We decided to take a trip on one of the old trams. This turned out to be a great idea. as we found places we missed on our walk the previous day.
 

 

 
We stopped at the famous Lello Bookshop, considered by many as the most beautiful bookshop in the world. It is here that JK Rowling got the inspiration for Hogwarts, while she was living in Porto. Despite the €4 entrance fee (you can offset this against a book if you buy one) there was a large queue outside.
 

 

 
We also wandered down Rua das Flores which is one of Porto’s prettiest streets. Filled with souvenir shops and quaint cafés, this tall, narrow street is another place to admire Porto’s beautiful architecture. We enjoyed watching the street artists perform and stopped for a bite of lunch on it’s busy square.

Shoppers will love the main street Rua Santa Caterina which is full of famous high street stores, with prices around 20% less than at home. If you fancy a coffee after a few hours at the shops, check out Café Majestic, Porto’s oldest and most famous coffee shop. It is a landmark and is also considered one of Europe’s top historical coffeehouses. Note it closes on Sunday.

porto

After visiting three churches, a cathedral and walking the length and breadth of Porto, we decided we better do something a bit more child friendly – I omitted to mention that this was a family break! 
 

 

 
We opted for the interactive Museum of Discoveries. I had read great reviews on TripAdvisor so in we went. We met the most enthusiastic host who was dressed as Vasco de Gamma, and was delighted to show us the highlights. The kids learned all about the places Portugal discovered and it was great to see them impressed by its history.
 

 

 
The museum also has a boat trip inside, similar to a theme park ride (although very slow) which Luke (10) and Alex (7) enjoyed, but it is probably more suited to younger kids.

porto

Sadly we didn’t have time to visit the beach town of Matosinhos, which is only 15 minutes drive from Porto.  I am told the seafood is incredible and unbelievably cheap here. Typically I found myself wishing I had another day. A day trip to the Douro Valley to see the wine lands would have been the perfect combination to a great city break to Porto  – I guess I’ll just have to come back to do this another time !
 

 

 
TOP TIP: Porto is quite hilly with lots of steps, make sure you wear appropriate footwear. However I wouldn’t let this put you off visiting Porto. There are tuk tuks and trams a plenty, and taxis, like most things in Porto are very reasonably priced.
 

 

 

Where to eat in Porto

Our flight arrived in the evening time so after a quick check-in we opted to dine somewhere close to our hotel. The concierge recommended La Ricotta – a Portuguese restaurant with an Italian influence.
 

 

 
The food and the service here were superb – it was a wonderful first impression of Porto’s food scene. My prawn risotto was delicious, and the kids were delighted with their pasta.

porto

Porto is renowned for being a top city break for foodies. With a wide array of Portuguese fish restaurants and tapas bars, as well as some fine dining options – there are four restaurants with Michelin stars, the value and choice here is hard to beat.

Every meal we had was delicious and we found it great value too. A glass of wine is €2.50 in most bars and restaurants, and you can get a set dinner menu for €10. I did find their famous Francesinha (little Frenchie) a little underwhelming! This is a sandwich of fillet steak, chorizo and ham covered with cheese and a spicy sauce, and served with chips. For me it was something that I would fancy at 3am after a night out, rather than over lunch, but each to their own!
 

 

 
What I loved about dining in Porto was the variety on offer. As well as top class food at low prices, there is a great choice of dining options to suit all tastes. There are modern brasseries, as well as family style Portuguese restaurants, and the al fresco options on the Ribeira offer stunning sunset views along the Duoro River.

Porto

One of our favourite meals was in a small tapas bar, Tababento. This was recommended to me by a few people and has excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. Don’t let the location (beside the train station), the exterior, and even the interior put you off – they are not exactly inviting! The service and the food was impeccable! Everything we had was delicious but the fois gras toastie (€13) and the wild tuna tataki (€12) stole the show. For anyone visiting Porto – you must go here!

Porto

TOP TIP: We tried to go to Tapabento for the first two nights of our trip and it was fully booked. In fact many restaurants we tried were full, so I would recommend pre-booking any recommended restaurants before you go.
 

 

 

Where to stay in Porto:

We stayed in the NH Collection Porto Batalha hotel, an excellent four-star hotel that was once an 18th century palace. Like most NH Collection Hotels, it combined modern decor in a historic building beautifully. Complete with a stunning red-painted facade and stone walls in the lobby, it has retained many of the buildings original features.
 

 

 
There is a small indoor pool and a spa offering a wide selection of treatments. Rooms are modern and spacious and if possible, try to get a room on the 4th floor which offer city views from the balcony. Read my review on the NH Collection Porto Batalha here.

Porto

TOP TIP: If bringing kids on a city break, try to book a hotel with a pool. It is a nice reward for kids at the end of a long day sightseeing.

 

Of all the city breaks I have taken in the last few years, Porto has surprised me the most. I hope you enjoyed my Porto travel guide and that you choose Porto for your next city break. I am sure you will fall in love with this colourful city and its mouthwatering cuisine!

Sarah Slattery, The Travel Expert reviews Barcelona

Full of famous landmarks like the Sagrada Familia and Park Guell, but Barcelona is as much about the simple things as the world famous sights. Strolling along the Ramblas, watching the street artists and stopping off for some tapas and a glass of Rioja is pretty special too. Barcelona is buzzing. There is great shopping, great nightlife and of course great food! You can also spend a day at the beach, take a trip to Port Aventura, Europe’s largest theme park, or visit one of the world’s biggest football clubs. It’s safe to say, there is something for everyone in Barcelona.
