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 14th (Sat), get into the urban bustle at Palacio da Bolsa, take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, and then take in the spiritual surroundings of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral). On the 15th (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, get lost in a book at Livraria Lello, and then indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink.

For traveler tips, photos, reviews, and tourist information, read our Porto trip planner .

Los Angeles, USA to Porto is an approximately 16-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. You'll lose 8 hours traveling from Los Angeles to Porto due to the time zone difference. Plan for slightly colder temperatures traveling from Los Angeles in December, with highs in Porto at 60°F and lows at 44°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Sun) so you can travel to Lisbon.
