Porto

— 2 nights

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.
Porto is known for shopping, historic sites, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, take in the waterfront activity at Cais da Ribeira, take in the spiritual surroundings of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), and look for gifts at Livraria Lello.
