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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Bom Jesus do Monte and Centro Historico de Guimaraes. Museum-lovers will appreciate House of Coimbra and Galeria Mario Sequeira. Venture out of the city with trips to Santuario de Santa Luzia (in Viana do Castelo), Sernancelhe (Santuario Nossa Senhora da Lapa & Igreja Matriz de Sernancelhe) and Zet Gallery (in Braga). Dedicate the 6th (Wed) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. The adventure continues: take a stroll around Palacio da Bolsa, stop by The Portuguese Cock, take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, and admire the landmark architecture of Torre da Universidade de Coimbra.
