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.
Get out of town with these interesting Porto side-trips: Coimbra (University of Coimbra & Jardim Botanico), Basilica de Nossa Senhora do Rosario de Fatima (in Fatima) and Bom Jesus do Monte (in Braga). There's still lots to do: take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, contemplate the long history of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), get the lay of the land with Walking tours, and take in the waterfront activity at Cais da Ribeira.
