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.
Start off your visit on the 28th (Wed): explore the activities along Rio Douro, take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, then take a stroll around Palacio da Bolsa, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), and finally take in panoramic vistas at Torre dos Clerigos. Keep things going the next day: make a trip to Monumento aos Herois da Guerra Peninsular, explore the world behind art at Museu Nacional de Soares dos Reis, then walk around Museu Serralves, and finally contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Bom Jesus do Monte.
