Porto

Porto ©
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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral) and Torre dos Clerigos. Get a sense of the local culture at Palacio da Bolsa and Museu Serralves. The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Praia do Carneiro, enjoy the sand and surf at Praia do Ourigo, snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, and awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area.

To plan Porto vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
