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.
Kick off your visit on the 30th (Fri): take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, learn about winemaking at Porto Augusto's, and then surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour. Here are some ideas for day two: relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, learn about winemaking at Graham's Port Lodge, and then relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour.
