Lisbon

City of Seven Hills

Built on seven hills, Lisbon has experienced a renaissance in recent years, making it the cultural star of Portugal.
Change things up with these side-trips from Lisbon: Sintra (Park and National Palace of Pena & Quinta da Regaleira). There's much more to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Lisbon Oceanarium, take a stroll through Alfama, pause for some photo ops at Padrao dos Descobrimentos, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Mosteiro dos Jeronimos.

For where to stay, more things to do, reviews, and tourist information, read our Lisbon sightseeing website.

The Route module shows you all the different ways you can get to Lisbon. In July in Lisbon, expect temperatures between 34°C during the day and 20°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 29th (Wed) so you can travel to Porto.

Porto

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.
Start off your visit on the 30th (Thu): take in the spiritual surroundings of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), contemplate the long history of Palacio da Bolsa, then take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, then take in the waterfront activity at Cais da Ribeira, and finally take in the local highlights with Walking tours. Here are some ideas for day two: stop by Livraria Lello, then don't miss a visit to Liberdade Square, and then let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour.

To find other places to visit, ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Porto trip maker tool.

You can fly from Lisbon to Porto in 3 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or take a train. While traveling from Lisbon, expect a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Porto, ranging from highs of 28°C to lows of 17°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 31st (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
