Built on seven hills, Lisbon has experienced a renaissance in recent years, making it the cultural star of Portugal.
Start off your visit on the 9th (Mon): appreciate the history behind Santuario Nacional de Cristo Rei, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, then make a trip to Belém Tower, and finally observe the fascinating underwater world at Lisbon Oceanarium. Here are some ideas for day two: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Parque Natural da Arrabida, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Mosteiro dos Jeronimos, and then steep yourself in history at Castelo de S. Jorge.

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.
Explore hidden gems such as Room Escape Games and Praia da Costa Nova. There's still lots to do: let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, take in the waterfront at Ribeira Square, snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, and contemplate the long history of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral).
