Porto — 6 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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Wine Tours & Tastings and Palacio da Bolsa. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Praia Do Labrego and Praia da Vagueira. Get out of town with these interesting Porto side-trips: Mindelo Beach (in Mindelo) and Praia da Vagueira (in Vagos). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), look for gifts at Santo da Casa, snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Torre dos Clerigos.
