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.

There's lots more to do: learn about winemaking at Pocas Vinhos, snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, appreciate the history behind Monumento aos Herois da Guerra Peninsular, and relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour.
