Where is it?
We live in Porto, in a quiet and friendly neighborhood, called Paranhos. Paranhos is the biggest area of Porto town. Our home is close to a bus stop (100m) and a metro station 5 mins walking, that lead you to the centre of the city. It is a very calm street with all the facilities nearby: a café, a supermarket, a grocery, a pharmacy, a hospital and banks. This is the university center in Porto. You have very good access to a shopping center(5 minutes max. walking). Our city offers many things such as wonderful sunny beaches, the river Douro and its riverbanks in the historical area (World Heritage by UNESCO), where you can visit our famous wine cellars (PORTO WINE), make a cruise and enjoy a wonderful sightseeing of the whole town; beautiful museums and great architectural buldings by Rem Koolhaas or Alvaro Siza Vieira; many parks and an incredible typical and alive area. Our weather is wonderful, so in August you can expect sunny and hot days. We also have nice and cheap restaurants, so you have to try our food!
