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 Nacional de Soares dos Reis and World of Discoveries - Museu Interativo & Parque Tematico will appeal to museum buffs. Get in touch with nature at Praia do Carneiro and Douro River. Change things up with a short trip to Praia da Costa Nova in Gafanha da Encarnacao (about 1h 15 min away). The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Palacio da Bolsa, take a stroll through Rua Santa Catarina, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), and take an in-depth tour of MMIPO - Museu da Misericordia do Porto.

For where to stay, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Porto online travel planner.
