Possible 20 hour layover in Porto, Portugal... worth it?
September 5, 2013 10:01 AM Subscribe
We're headed to Brussels in March, and we're looking at flight prices. We know it's a bit early, but we're trying to spot any deals and grab them. We saw a flight to Brussels with a layover in Porto, Portugal, and the one on way home is 20+ hours (landing around 4pm and taking off at 11:30am the next day). Could we get a good stay in Porto, Portugal out of those 20 hours? What's there to do? Will we get by without knowing the language?

We've been looking at this guide
for hotels and we like this hotel
. It looks to be a better neighborhood than the hotels closer to the river... but we have no idea! Can you tell us about Porto? What can we do for a late lunch, a few quick exploratory/touristy things, dinner and possibly breakfast? Also, is ~$800 round trip from the US East coast a good price? Absolutely any other advice you have about Porto or this area is welcome. Thank you!
