The grey city which seemed to be sleeping has awaken. The streets are no longer empty at late hour, as crowds of young people start walking around towards “Piolho”. This is were you can start with a coffee, or a beer. Gather around your group of friends, and then walk down towards the centre of town, past the most beautiful bookshop in Europe and turn there left to the Rua Cândido dos Reis: The Porto’s “movida” unfolds before your eyes! On this beautiful art nouveau street where once were warehouses and big shops now you find bars, designer shops, and all sort of events. Try them, you can buy a beer and take it out. Just follow the crowd and have fun!
You can then go further into Praça Filipa de Lencastre and party there or even just follow the crowd to wherever they’ll take you and discover another side of this city.
