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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Largo da Oliveira and Porto Bridge Climb. And it doesn't end there: take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, examine the collection at FC Porto Museum, take in the waterfront at Ribeira Square, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Capela das Almas.
