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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Praia da Costa Nova and Praia da Barra. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Porto Augusto's and Garrafeira do Carmo. Step out of Porto to go to Aveiro and see Parque Infante D. Pedro, which is approximately 1h 15 min away. And it doesn't end there: explore the striking landscape of Celanus-Empresa de Turismo, SA, look for all kinds of wild species at Reserva Natural Estuario do Douro, and pause for some photo ops at Monumento aos Herois da Guerra Peninsular.
