Porto

— 1 night

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.
On the 2nd (Sun), explore the activities along Douro River, take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, take a stroll around Palacio da Bolsa, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), and finally stop by Livraria Lello. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area and then take in the local highlights with Walking tours.
