Porto

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.
Porto is known for shopping, historic sites, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, steep yourself in history at Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), and admire the masterpieces at Museu Nacional de Soares dos Reis.

To find traveler tips, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Porto day trip app.

Los Angeles, USA to Porto is an approximately 17-hour flight. You'll lose 8 hours traveling from Los Angeles to Porto due to the time zone difference. Prepare for slightly colder weather when traveling from Los Angeles in September: high temperatures in Porto hover around 74°F and lows are around 56°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Sat) early enough to travel to Lisbon.
