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.
Visit Palacio da Bolsa and Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral) for their historical value. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Porto Augusto's and Praia da Costa Nova. Get out of town with these interesting Porto side-trips: Pinhao (The Douro Valley & Quinta do Bomfim), O Navio Gil Eannes (in Viana do Castelo) and Largo da Oliveira (in Guimaraes). Dedicate the 22nd (Wed) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's lots more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Igreja do Carmo, learn about winemaking at Cockburn’s Port Wine Lodge, browse the different shops at Forum Aveiro, and browse for treasures at A Vida Portuguesa.
