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 21st (Sun): admire the masterpieces at Museu Serralves, then explore the world behind art at Museu Nacional de Soares dos Reis, then snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, and finally get into the urban bustle at Palacio da Bolsa. On the 22nd (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: appreciate the history behind Monumento aos Herois da Guerra Peninsular, have a few drinks at Maus Habitos - Espaco de Intervencao Cultural, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of Sao Pedro dos Clerigos, then steep yourself in history at Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), and finally examine the collection at FC Porto Museum.
