Porto is one of the most up-and-coming destinations in Europe and an excellent alternative to Lisbon. The city is a maze of cute, cobbled streets dotted with cafés, plazas and churches – all in the typically Portuguese style of beautifully coloured, tiled façades. When you’re done with exploring, why not book yourself onto one of the increasingly popular boat tours along the river? If you’d rather stick to dry land, then you might prefer to do a spot of Port sampling instead.

Head to the Ryanair website to snag one of these fares while they last. They’re only available on certain dates in November, ranging from full week-long breaks to cheeky weekend getaways.

Remember, Ryanair’s lowest fares don’t include a checked bag. But, if you’re clever with your packing, that shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
