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.
Escape the urban bustle at Rio Douro and Palacio de Cristal. Step out of Porto with an excursion to Centro Historico de Guimaraes in Guimaraes--about 44 minutes away. Spend the 26th (Fri) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. The adventure continues: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), tour the pleasant surroundings at Oporto Mountain Tour, snap pictures at Ponte de D. Luis, and go for a stroll along the water at Cais da Ribeira.
