Porto

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, take in the waterfront activity at Cais da Ribeira, explore the activities along Douro River, and don't miss a visit to Liberdade Square.

For ratings, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, read our Porto visit planner.

Ottawa, Canada to Porto is an approximately 12-hour combination of train, bus, and flight. You can also fly. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 5 hours traveling from Ottawa to Porto. In September, plan for daily highs up to 27°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Tavira.
