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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Se de Braga and Old Cathedral of Coimbra (Se Velha de Coimbra). Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral) and Basilica da Santissima Trindade are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Porto: Fatima (Capela Das Aparicoes & Valinhos Sanctuary), Sameiro Sanctuary (in Braga) and Museu Monografico de Conimbriga (in Condeixa-a-Nova). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at The Douro Valley, appreciate the extensive heritage of Largo da Oliveira, do a tasting at Quinta Santa Eufemia, and explore the ancient world of Citania de Briteiros.

To see other places to visit, photos, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Porto road trip planner.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airport is Francisco de Sá Carneiro Airport. In September, daily temperatures in Porto can reach 27°C, while at night they dip to 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
