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.
Porto is known for historic sites, nightlife, shopping, nature, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, stroll through Museu Serralves, explore the activities along Rio Douro, and browse the collection at Livraria Lello.
