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.
Museu Serralves and Maus Habitos - Espaco de Intervencao Cultural will appeal to museum buffs. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Praia da Luz and Praia da Barra. Get out of town with these interesting Porto side-trips: Amorosa Beach (in Chafe), Ilhavo (Praia da Costa Nova & Praia da Vagueira) and Praia Fluvial de Burgaes (in Vale de Cambra). Spend the 23rd (Thu) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Dedicate the 21st (Tue) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), wander the streets of Rua Santa Catarina, learn about winemaking at Taylor's Port, and enjoy the sand and surf at Praia de Miramar.

If you are flying in from Brazil, the closest major airport is Francisco de Sá Carneiro Airport. Expect a daytime high around 23°C in May, and nighttime lows around 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
