Guideline Porto: 8 things to do

Porto is a vibrant city in which will mesmerize you with its charm and lovely people. We visited Porto in the first week of September and enjoyed it a lot! In this guideline we will take you on a tour through the second largest city in Portugal.

Getting by

Porto has a great public transport network. The metro, bus and tram (all from the same company and integrated in the tickets) can take you anywhere in the city and neighboring cities. There are different tickets available for your convenience: You can buy a ticket for € 0,50 which is rechargeable. One hour unlimited travel is as cheap as € 1,20. You can also purchase special visitors tickets for 24 hours for € 7,- per person or for 3 days for € 15,-. We recommend not taking them, unless you are planning to take the public transport to a lot of places during your stay.

1) Dining with the locals

14 euro 3 dishes of fish and a salad. Francesinha.  2.20 euro pp breakfast.

2) Hunt for Tiles

Short stop: Nederweert War Cemetery

Are you visiting the South of the Netherlands and doing a little tour? Just 30 kilometers from Eindhoven towards Maastricht you will pass the village Nederweert. There is not much to see in the village except one beautiful memorial: the Nederweert War Cemetery.

View of the entrance

The cemetery is dedicated to the casualties after the liberation of Nederweert on 21st September 1944. Nederweert was liberated by British troops, who still had ongoing fights with German patrols in the area.

There is a total of 362 graves on the burial site (Not as huge as the memorial site at Margraten, read more about that HERE).All the fallen soldiers are from Commonwealth countries. On the cemetery, there is Cross of Sacrifice with a bronze sword in it. In the back, there is a small chapel. See the gallery below for a view of the memorial.

It is worth a short visit while you are in the area. You can park the car next to the park the burial site is situated. It is 50 meters walk towards the entrance, also accessible by wheelchair. A great pitstop in the beautiful province of Limburg!
