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 shopping, historic sites, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour, admire the masterpieces at Museu Serralves, and contemplate the waterfront views at Douro River.

Start your trip to Porto by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.
