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.

There's still lots to do: take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, enjoy breathtaking views from Torre dos Clerigos, wander the streets of Rua Santa Catarina, and admire the masterpieces at Museu Serralves.
