Meet the nicest fishermen and their wives who will welcome you and enjoy sharing lifetime experiences and local customs. The Porto city tour proposes one cycling stage in the city, riding along the riverside, the city park connecting with the beach and the amazing historic city centre. A second stage will take you along the seaside, passing by protect wild bird area, fishing villages and golden sandy beaches.
Take a break and sit down for a lunch of fresh fish and seafood in one of the villages along the way. The town of Matosinhos, before Porto, has the biggest discharging-port of sardine (the tasteful Portuguese sardine) famous worldwide. An agreeable traditional restaurant, on one of the streets near the fishing port, could be the ideal place for lunch with the most delicate dainties of the sea: different shellfish, tasteful barnacles, the coast shrimp or the stuffed spider crab, and a choice of fish to grill, including, of course, the typical sardines.
