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.
On the 2nd (Mon), awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area, then snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, and then take a stroll around Palacio da Bolsa.

For other places to visit, where to stay, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Porto trip planning website.
