Porto — 3 nights

Called "Oporto" by many, the city of Porto along the Duoro River lent the country and Port wine their names. Portugal's second-largest metropolis dates back to the 4th century, representing both a rich cultural past and industrial present through its architecture and style.
Porto is known for sightseeing, shopping, and historic sites. Your trip includes some of its best attractions: snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, get into the urban bustle at Palacio da Bolsa, take in the spiritual surroundings of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), and stroll through Ribeira do Porto.

To see more things to do, where to stay, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Porto trip planning website.
