Porto is a city in which the four seasons are quite clearly defined. When travelling to Porto during summer or spring, you will definitely need to pack some light clothes as the weather can be quite warm, but do not forget to bring a sweater as nights here are always a bit chilly. If you come during autumn, you’ll notice right away that things can get a bit rainy and windy around here so be sure to be prepared. Comparing to autumn, winter in Porto is much colder and dry than rainy and humid, as we say here it’s a kind of cold that gets into your bones so instead of an umbrella you should bring a big coat, scarf and a beanie hat. Whatever the weather might be during your visit to Port, we are more than sure that you’ll blown away by Porto and everything it has to offer.
