Porto, Portugal

— 1 night

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.
Kick off your visit on the 31st (Wed): contemplate the waterfront views at Douro River, then snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, and then steep yourself in history at Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral). Here are some ideas for day two: see the interesting displays at World of Discoveries - Museu Interativo & Parque Tematico, then stroll through Praia do Carneiro, and then admire the masterpieces at Museu Serralves.
