Porto

Unvanquished City

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.
You've added River Rafting & Tubing, Taste Porto Food Tours, Living Tours Portugal, and other attractions to your itinerary. The adventure continues: learn about winemaking at Pocas Vinhos and explore the activities along Douro River.

For traveler tips, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Porto trip itinerary maker website.
