Subject: Re: Porto in September
Hi John, We were in Porto for 3 days and the north of Portugal for 9 days in March, 2002 so if I can be of any help, let me know. We stayed at the Grand Hotel of Porto on the main pedestrian shopping street (Santa Catarina St.) and just around the corner from the Balhao market. They are renovating the main floor of the hotel so the rate was very reasonable.(38E a night) It was a great location. We rented our car from Europecar which was down the street. We did not pick it up until we left the city as the bus and our feet were all we needed in Porto. Parking is a problem in the city. Good Luck. Charlotte
