This trail’s creator, and world travel blogger, Amanda, explored the city in search of the most stunning panoramic views, curious street art, authentic local gastronomy and, of course, Port wine. You’ll find it all by solving fun location-based riddles. Along the way, you’ll tune into the city and experience its unique charm first-hand.
