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.
Popular historic sites such as Palacio da Bolsa and Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral) are in your itinerary. Museu Serralves and Museu Nacional de Soares dos Reis will appeal to museum buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Porto: Coimbra (Coisas e Sabores & Alma Lusitana). There's lots more to do: snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, explore the activities along Douro River, stop by Porto Passion - Original Gifts & Special Moments, and go for a stroll along the water at Cais da Ribeira.
