Route & dates
Porto— 30 nights
Sat, Jul 1 - Mon, Jul 31
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.Take a break from the city and head to Douro River and Torreira Beach. Popular historic sites such as Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral) and Palacio da Bolsa are in your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Guimaraes (Igreja e Convento de Sao Francisco, Centro Historico de Guimaraes, &more), Praia dos Palheiros da Tocha (in Tocha) and Praia de Sao Jacinto (in Sao Jacinto). Dedicate the 10th (Mon) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at Museu Serralves, pause for some serene contemplation at Igreja de Sao Pedro dos Clerigos, take in the spiritual surroundings of Bom Jesus do Monte, and snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I.
