Built on seven hills, Lisbon has experienced a renaissance in recent years, making it the cultural star of Portugal.
Venture out of the city with trips to Sintra (Quinta da Regaleira & Park and National Palace of Pena). And it doesn't end there: meet the residents at Lisbon Oceanarium, take in the spiritual surroundings of Mosteiro dos Jeronimos, step into the grandiose world of Castelo de S. Jorge, and don't miss a visit to Praca do Comercio (Terreiro do Paco).

Porto

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 20th (Sat): get the lay of the land with Walking tours, admire the landmark architecture of Palacio da Bolsa, then take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), and finally appreciate the history behind Monumento aos Herois da Guerra Peninsular. On the next day, indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink, then browse the collection at Livraria Lello, and then don't miss a visit to Liberdade Square.

To find where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, you can read our Porto online travel planner .

Traveling by flight from Lisbon to Porto takes 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train; or drive. While traveling from Lisbon, expect slightly colder days and about the same nights in Porto, ranging from highs of 26°C to lows of 16°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
