Ponta Delgada, Sao Miguel

Ponta Delgada ©
As the busy capital of São Miguel, Ponta Delgada represents the most visited place on the island. Known for its historical buildings, the city offers 17th- and 18th-century convents and churches, as well as cobbled pedestrian streets and hidden squares.
Get a sense of the local culture at Nossa Senhora da Paz and Igreja do Santo Cristo. Step out of the city life by going to Caldeira das Sete Cidades and Lagoa do Fogo. There's lots more to do: get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, contemplate the waterfront views at Furnas, take some stellar pictures from Boca do Inferno Viewpoint, and don't miss a visit to Portas da Cidade.

For reviews, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, use the Ponta Delgada itinerary site.

Newark, USA to Ponta Delgada is an approximately 11-hour combination of car and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 4 hours traveling from Newark to Ponta Delgada.

Porto

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.
Start off your visit on the 14th (Fri): pause for some serene contemplation at Torre dos Clerigos, get into the urban bustle at Palacio da Bolsa, and then explore the activities along Douro River.

Plan my Porto trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Getting from Ponta Delgada to Porto by flight takes about 4.5 hours. The time zone changes from Azores Standard Time (AZOT) to Western European Standard Time (WET), which is usually a 1 hour difference. Traveling from Ponta Delgada in September, you can expect nighttime temperatures to be a bit cooler in Porto, with lows of 56°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Sat) early enough to travel to Lisbon.

Jorge.
