Starting today, easyJet, offers flights for its new route between Porto and Prague. With trips available from the 4th of May, the airline will operate 3 frequencies per week.

“I’m very excited to announce this new route between Porto and Prague which will link two of the most vibrant cities in Europe. Northern Portugal has a lot to offer, from sightseeing, wine tasting, and food experiences, we can’t wait to welcome to Porto our customers from the Czech Republic in the next months,” says José Lopes, easyJet Portugal country manager.

“We continue to look at summer with confidence as we know our customers look forward to a well-needed holiday, reunite with their loved ones and meet their business partners in person,” he adds.

“Porto has long been among the priorities in terms of the development of air connections. We are glad the destination will now be even more accessible from Prague thanks to the direct easyJet route,” Jaroslav Filip, Director of Prague Airport Aviation Business, said.

Why Go To Porto

Porto has long been a hot destination for wine lovers – it’s the go-to place to find the best of that sweet, tasty port wine. But this city by the sea has more to offer than vinho. Travelers can visit the city’s wealth of museums, admire its varied architecture, relax in its verdant parks and, of course, hit the beach.

The city earns its nickname Cidade das Pontes, or “City of Bridges,” from the six arches spanning the Rio Douro (Douro River), which runs along Porto’s southern edge.

Views of the Douro River are best enjoyed from the Dom Luís I Bridge, the most iconic of Porto’s six structures. From here you can get a sense of Porto’s unique charm, from its colorful UNESCO World Heritage historic district to the north to the neighboring town of Vila Nova de Gaia just south, where you’ll find the region’s famous wineries.

You could spend a long weekend or a week here strolling the city, discovering the contemporary art in the Serralves Foundation complex and appreciating the history behind Porto’s old churches like the Sé and Igreja de São Francisco.

The Ribeira (literally “riverbank”) district is the city’s most colorful and touristy quarter. Strolling the Ribeira embankment, while popping in and out of shops that line the way, is Porto’s best lazy-afternoon activity. Be sure to duck into the back streets where time-worn faces and once-dazzling facades seem to ferment into an intoxicating sip of port-for-the-eyes.

The town’s two most famous foods — tripe stew and a quadruple-decker sandwich drenched in sauce — say it all: This place is unpretentious. Locals claim they’re working too hard to worry about being pretty. As an oft-repeated saying about Portuguese cities goes, “Coimbra studies, Braga prays, Lisbon parties…and Porto works.”
