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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Museu Serralves and World of Discoveries - Museu Interativo & Parque Tematico. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Palacio da Bolsa and Rua Santa Catarina. Explore Porto's surroundings by going to Viana do Castelo (Museu do Traje, O Navio Gil Eannes, & more). Spend the 9th (Tue) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. And it doesn't end there: take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, get advice or help at Livraria Lello, contemplate the long history of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), and examine the collection at Museu Militar Do Porto.
