Built on seven hills, Lisbon has experienced a renaissance in recent years, making it the cultural star of Portugal.
Escape the urban bustle at Praia da ursa and Praia do Magoito. Do some cultural sightseeing at Belém Tower and Castelo de S. Jorge. Step out of Lisbon with an excursion to Guincho Beach in Cascais--about 34 minutes away. There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Mosteiro dos Jeronimos, make a trip to Elevador de Santa Justa, choose your vessel at Nosso Tejo, and visit Alfama.

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.
Get some cultural insight at Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral) and Igreja da Ordem Terceira de São Francisco. Visiting Douro River and Praia dos Ingleses will get you outdoors. There's much more to do: take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, enjoy the sand and surf at Praia do Carneiro, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, and look for gifts at Livraria Lello.
