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 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, take in the spiritual surroundings of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), get lost in a book at Livraria Lello, and get into the urban bustle at Palacio da Bolsa.
