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 27th (Thu), kick back and relax at Praia do Carneiro, look for gifts at Prometeu, stop by Garrafeira do Carmo, then get a taste of the local shopping with Mercado do Bolhao, and finally take a stroll through Rua Santa Catarina.
