Porto is an all year round destination thanks to its glorious climate and the best time to visit is from April to the end of September, when the days are long and warm. During that period the temperature ranges from a pleasant 23°C to the late thirties in July and August, with hardly any rain. If it does rain it tends to be at night, which is perfect for its lush landscape.
