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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral) and Museu Serralves. You'll explore and learn at Museu Nacional de Soares dos Reis and FC Porto Museum. Dedicate the 24th (Fri) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's much more to do: take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, get into the urban bustle at Palacio da Bolsa, brush up on your military savvy at Museu Militar Do Porto, and see the interesting displays at Casa-Museu Marta Ortigao Sampaio.
