Porto

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 shopping, historic sites, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, contemplate the waterfront views at Douro River, take a stroll around Palacio da Bolsa, and steep yourself in history at Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral).

To see other places to visit, ratings, reviews, and tourist information, read Porto trip planner.

Mumbai, India to Porto is an approximately 16.5-hour flight. You can also drive. You'll gain 5.5 hours traveling from Mumbai to Porto due to the time zone difference. Prepare for cooler weather when traveling from Mumbai in December: high temperatures in Porto hover around °C and lows are around °C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Thu) early enough to go by car to Portimao.

Originally a small fishing village, Portimão today serves as one of the most populated towns in the Algarve and also a favorite spot for sailing.
Venture out of the city with trips to Lagoa dos Salgados (in Gale), Ponta da Piedade (in Lagos) and Hot Wheels Raceway (in Albufeira). The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Falesia Beach, find something for the whole family at Zoomarine Algarve, have fun at Tennisinportugal, and get your game on at Hovercraft - Hovertrack Portugal.

To find reviews and more tourist information, refer to the Portimao travel website.

You can drive from Porto to Portimao in 5.5 hours. Other options are to fly; or take a train. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Porto in December since evenings lows in Portimao dip to °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sun) to allow enough time to drive to Lisbon.
