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.
Dedicate the 15th (Fri) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's much more to do: snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, contemplate the waterfront views at Douro River, catch a live event at Estadio do Dragao, and enjoy breathtaking views from Torre dos Clerigos.
