I would recommend a visit to one of the many port wine cellars, for a guided touy. They are quite cheap and you get some port wine at the end of the tour included. Taylor do some very good tours for instance. Also try to visit the Douro Valley when you are there. You can easily take the local train from Porto to Lamego, where you have all the hillsides where the wine is grown. This is one of the prettiest places in Europe if you ask me. I have a few photos from there on my blog if you are interested on this link: http://travellingclaus.com/douro-valley/

Hi Adeline,
Claus' offers great suggestions. I will also add the following things to do when in Porto:
  • Go on a Downtown Food Tour with Taste Porto (not available on Sundays) where you get to sample 10 types https://www.tasteporto.com/tour/downtown-food-tour/
  • Try Porto's iconic food - Francesinha (see photo below). Taste Porto recommended 5 top places to have Francesinha - O Golfinho, Santiago F, Lado B, Bufete Fase, and O Afonso https://www.tasteporto.com/top-francesinhas-in-porto/
  • Explore Ribeira, Porto's oldest neighborhood with cafes, restaurants, and bars overlooking Douro River
  • Walk across the famous Dom Luis I Bridge
  • And of course, visit the port wine cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia
