Porto

— 4 nights

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.
Take a break from Porto with a short trip to Toboga in Braga, about 1h 30 min away. Dedicate the 19th (Mon) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's much more to do: take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, look for gifts at Livraria Lello, explore the activities along Douro River, and pause for some serene contemplation at Igreja do Carmo.

Plan my Porto trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
