Ponta Delgada, Sao Miguel

— 4 nights
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.
Step out of the city life by going to Caldeira das Sete Cidades and Lagoa do Fogo. Change things up with these side-trips from Ponta Delgada: Furnas (Parque Terra Nostra & Poca Da Dona Beija). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Praia de Santa Barbara, stroll through Caldeira Velha Environmental Interpretation Centre, pause for some serene contemplation at Igreja Matriz de Sao Sebastiao, and explore the activities along Furnas.

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.
On the 13th (Tue), take in panoramic vistas at Torre dos Clerigos, admire the striking features of Palacio da Bolsa, and then contemplate the waterfront views at Douro River.

Mountain Island
Composed of nine volcanic islands scattered in the Atlantic some 1,300 km (850 mi) west of continental Portugal, the Azores represent one of Europe's remotest vacation destinations. Settled sporadically over a span of several centuries, the islands in this archipelago retain much of their isolated feel, each one boasting its own distinct culture, dialect, and cuisine. Long overlooked by even the most adventurous travelers, the islands now surprise a growing number of visitors with their lavish natural beauty, good roads, and hospitable towns providing comfortable accommodations and modern amenities. Place the island of Pico at the top of your itinerary to discover Portugal's highest mountain, a picture-perfect volcanic cone rising above a landscape of World Heritage-listed vineyards.
