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.
Visiting Rio Douro and Praia do Carneiro will get you outdoors. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Palacio da Bolsa and Rua Santa Catarina. Get out of town with these interesting Porto side-trips: Praia da Arda (in Afife), University of Coimbra (in Coimbra) and Basilica de Nossa Senhora do Rosario de Fatima (in Fatima). And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, enjoy breathtaking views from Torre dos Clerigos, tour the pleasant surroundings at Praia de Lavadores, and enjoy the sand and surf at Praia do Molhe.

To see more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Porto road trip tool .

If you are flying in from Israel, the closest major airport is Francisco de Sá Carneiro Airport. In August, daily temperatures in Porto can reach 28°C, while at night they dip to 17°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
