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.
Porto is known for historic sites, nightlife, shopping, nature, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, get lost in a book at Livraria Lello, and take in the waterfront activity at Cais da Ribeira.

To see maps, where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, use the Porto sightseeing planner.
