Porto — 3 nights

Unvanquished City

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.
Dedicate the 10th (Mon) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. And it doesn't end there: take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, get a taste of the local shopping with Livraria Lello, make a trip to Liberdade Square, and get the lay of the land with Walking tours.
