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: take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, contemplate the long history of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), and get outside with Outdoor Activities.

To find maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Porto trip planner.
