Porto
The second largest city in Portugal, this hilltop metropolis offers more than excellent port wine. Wonderful food, a compact city center, lively medieval old town along the river, cobbled streets, grand homes, great cafes and sweeping vistas from many locations. Undeniably pleasant, with a welcoming population and high level of English, Porto is attracting more and more remote workers who are looking for an easy, safe and friendly place to live. Being right near the coast helps as well!

If you want to go to a stylish place for drinks head to the Galerias de Paris street and surrounding area as it's full of cool bars and discos. It's common to get a drink and then just stand outside in the street with all the other partygoers.

Some of the most popular coworking spaces with my friends in Porto are:ย Porto i/o, CRU Cowork, Cool.Office Porto, Facts Coworking and Muratto Open Space Porto. They all get good reviews but offer different vibes so it's worth checking them out and deciding which suits you the best.

Porto is really quite safe with a low crime rate. Keep an eye on your valuables on the city's trams and metro, where pickpockets and bag-snatchers occasionally operate, especially in rush-hour crowds. It's good keep an eye out in the tourist hubs such as Rua das Flores and Cais da Ribeira as well. But overall, there's not much to worry about here.

The popular caldo verde (soup) served at restaurants is NOT vegetarian... even if the waiter says it is. it almost always has small chunks of sausage in it. Vegetarian options in restaurants are relatively limited: expect to eat a lot of salads and omelets.

You can save money in bars by drinking your coffee or beer standing at the counter, rather than sitting outside on the terrace!
