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.
Get outdoors at Rio Douro and Oporto Mountain Tour. Get a sense of the local culture at Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral) and Museu Nacional de Soares dos Reis. There's much more to do: take in the views from Ponte de D. Luis, make a trip to Estadio do Dragao, contemplate the long history of Palacio da Bolsa, and stroll through Palacio de Cristal.

To see photos, reviews, maps, and tourist information, read our Porto vacation trip planner.

Use the Route module to find suitable travel options from Whitby, Canada to Porto. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Western European Time (WET) is 5 hours. Traveling from Whitby in September, Porto is somewhat warmer at night with lows of 17°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Lamego.
