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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Palacio da Bolsa and O Navio Gil Eannes. For shopping fun, head to Forum Aveiro or A Vida Portuguesa. Get out of town with these interesting Porto side-trips: Praia da Costa Nova (in Ilhavo), Pinhao (The Douro Valley & Quinta do Bomfim) and Largo da Oliveira (in Guimaraes). Dedicate the 22nd (Wed) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), take a stroll through Rua Santa Catarina, snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, and appreciate the history behind Monumento aos Herois da Guerra Peninsular.
