Porto, Portugal

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 shopping, historic sites, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, enjoy breathtaking views from Torre dos Clerigos, go for a stroll along the water at Cais da Ribeira, and don't miss a visit to Liberdade Square.

To find ratings, more things to do, photos, and more tourist information, read our Porto day trip planning tool.
