Porto is not just a city with monuments and landscapes to enjoy. With the increase of tourism, there are more and more trendy stores scattered throughout the city that can provide an amazing shopping experience in Porto. Street shops usually run from 10am to 7pm, unlike shopping centers, which run from 10am to midnight. Sunday is the only day of the week when we do not advise to go shopping in Porto, as in general the street shops are closed, except during the Holidays. Rua Santa Catarina and Rua de Cedofeita are 2 famous streets for shopping and for pedestrians only.
