Porto

Unvanquished City

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 shopping, historic sites, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, walk around Praca de Lisboa, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, and get into the urban bustle at Palacio da Bolsa.
