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, get into the urban bustle at Palacio da Bolsa, take in the spiritual surroundings of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), and take a leisurely stroll along Cais da Ribeira.
