Thank you so much for this...we get into Porto on 19th around 4pm & should be at our hotel by at least 5:30pm-6pm....and looks like only a 10min metro ride from our hotel on other side of river....that will be a great way to start our Portugal adventure...perhaps we should try to make reservations before hand, or can one just show up?

In researching this further, I see it is a large department store with a wonderful selection of almost everything, and may definitely see about visiting on one of the few days we are in Porto, but perhaps a little restaurant near our hotel the first night might be better and then we can crash after our long flight.  Great to see so many interesting things going on to check out at some point when we finally get there long term.  Thanks so much for sharing.
