Porto is a charming city on the estuary of the River Duoro. The second biggest city in Portugal offers a unique ensemble of decorated streets, grand business offices, and churches. Our language school is situated in an Art Nouveau building in the middle of the Old Town and belongs to the best institutions of the world. The Old Town ‘Ribeira’ belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage site. The wonderful, inviting cafés, bars, restaurants and clubs are very busy during the night. Down narrow alleyways in the Old Town, there are baroque churches and magnificent buildings like the ‘Palacio de Bolsa’ and the ‘Livraria Lello e Irmão’, one of the most beautiful book shops in the world. Over the 'Dom Luis' bridge you reach the other side of the Duoros, where the view of the Old Town is the most beautiful. During the evenings, the residents and guests meet in the restaurants of the ‘Cais de Ribeira’ and eat right on the romantic port, before it turns into a club with all night dancing like at ‘ACT’ or at 'Rua de Manuel Pinto de Azevedo'
