Viseu

Viseu ©
Viseu is a city and municipality in the Centro Region of Portugal and the capital of the district of the same name, with a population of 99,274 inhabitants, and center of the Viseu Dão Lafões intermunipical community, with 267,633 inhabitants.Settled during the period of the early Iberian castro culture, the territory of Viseu was populated by a series of cultures, that include the Romans, Suebs, Visigoths and Moors. Step out of the city life by going to Choupal National Forest and Sky Garden Parque de Arborismo. Explore Viseu's surroundings by going to Praia Fluvial de Vimieiro (in Penacova) and Coimbra (University of Coimbra, Jardim Botanico, &more).

Plan my Viseu trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Newcastle upon Tyne, UK to Viseu is an approximately 10-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Fri) to allow time to drive to Porto.

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.
Get in touch with nature at Douro River and Praia de Lavadores. The adventure continues: indulge your senses at some of the top wineries in the area, stop by Livraria Lello, go for a stroll along the water at Cais da Ribeira, and enjoy breathtaking views from Torre dos Clerigos.

To see photos, other places to visit, maps, and other tourist information, read our Porto road trip planner.

Drive from Viseu to Porto in 1.5 hours. In September, daily temperatures in Porto can reach °C, while at night they dip to °C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
