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.
Visit Palacio da Bolsa and Igreja da Ordem Terceira de São Francisco for their historical value. For shopping fun, head to Mercado do Bolhao or Garrafeira do Carmo. Get out of town with these interesting Porto side-trips: Centro Historico de Guimaraes (in Guimaraes) and Se de Braga (in Braga). Dedicate the 9th (Sun) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), let the river carry you with Oporto Mountain Tour, snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, and explore the activities along Douro River.

For where to stay, more things to do, reviews, and more tourist information, read our Porto trip planner.
