Porto, Portugal

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.
On the 26th (Sat), indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas. Keep things going the next day: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Torre dos Clerigos, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), get into the urban bustle at Palacio da Bolsa, then snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, then contemplate the waterfront views at Rio Douro, and finally get the lay of the land with Walking tours.
