This tour was designed to show you a different side of the city of Porto – through its impressive street art. Porto’s street art scene has flourished not only in number but also in terms of quality. It’s not by chance that Porto is known as one of the best destinations for street art in Europe – and you’re about to see why!
Because what we want to show you is spread out over the city, we thought the easiest way to explore is by E-bike. After selecting your bike, we’ll brief you about the experience and how to use the e-bikes in the city. Then, once everyone is feeling comfortable, it’s time to start riding.
Starting out on a flat area will give you enough time to adapt and get your first glimpse of the beautiful city of Porto. We’ll pass by historical monuments, but our main focus will be on the facades of old buildings or even on electricity boxes that have been transformed into amazing works of art. At every stop, we’ll also tell you about the different artists, their inspirations, and the techniques they used – many of which are quite unique.
As you cycle through the city, we’ll make stops at some of our favourite pieces of street art, the first of which will be Half Rabbit by Bordallo II, a stunning large-scale installation you need to see to believe – created using found and repurposed materials. Then, we’ll make a strategic stop for a fantastic view of the city (so have your cameras ready). We’ll then continue on for more street art spotting, including a very cool mural by the artist known as Vhils. Along the way, we’ll also show you the first legal graffiti in the city to give you a better understanding of how different politics can influence this type of art.
You’ll end the tour back where it started, with a newfound appreciation for street art and very likely, an Instagram feed filled with amazing photos.
