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.
Largo da Oliveira and Palacio da Bolsa will appeal to history buffs. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Nature & Wildlife Tours and Praia da Costa Nova. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Porto: Se de Braga (in Braga) and Paco dos Duques de Braganca (in Guimaraes). There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), steep yourself in history at Monumento aos Herois da Guerra Peninsular, and learn about winemaking at Porto Augusto's.
