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 the numerous day-trip ideas around Porto: Coimbra (Portugal dos Pequenitos, University of Coimbra, & more), Batalha Monastery (in Batalha) and Basilica de Nossa Senhora do Rosario de Fatima (in Fatima). There's still lots to do: take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, indulge your senses at some of the top wineries in the area, take a stroll around Palacio da Bolsa, and browse the collection at Livraria Lello.

To find reviews, traveler tips, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Porto sightseeing planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Francisco de Sá Carneiro Airport. December in Porto sees daily highs of 60°F and lows of 44°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
