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 16th (Tue) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's still lots to do: snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, take a stroll around Palacio da Bolsa, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, and look for gifts at Livraria Lello.

To see ratings, maps, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Porto route maker app.
