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.
Dedicate the 18th (Tue) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. Next up on the itinerary: snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, explore the activities along Douro River, and take in the waterfront activity at Cais da Ribeira.

To find reviews, other places to visit, traveler tips, and other tourist information, read Porto travel planner.

Montreal, Canada to Porto is an approximately 10-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 5 hours traveling from Montreal to Porto. In May, plan for daily highs up to °C, and evening lows to °C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 18th (Tue) so you can go by car to Coimbra.

Striking views of the Estremadura area and a famous medieval castle gave Obidos the name of Wedding Present Town.
