Porto — 5 nights

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.
Step out of the city life by going to Oporto Buggy Adventure and Douro River. Visit Praia da Costa Nova and Matosinhos Beach for some beach relaxation. Go for a jaunt from Porto to Vale de Cambra to see Praia Fluvial de Burgaes about 50 minutes away. Dedicate the 22nd (Fri) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's still lots to do: snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, look for gifts at Livraria Lello, take in the spiritual surroundings of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), and take a stroll around Palacio da Bolsa.

Mountain Island
Composed of nine volcanic islands scattered in the Atlantic some 1,300 km (850 mi) west of continental Portugal, the Azores represent one of Europe's remotest vacation destinations. Settled sporadically over a span of several centuries, the islands in this archipelago retain much of their isolated feel, each one boasting its own distinct culture, dialect, and cuisine. Long overlooked by even the most adventurous travelers, the islands now surprise a growing number of visitors with their lavish natural beauty, good roads, and hospitable towns providing comfortable accommodations and modern amenities. Place the island of Pico at the top of your itinerary to discover Portugal's highest mountain, a picture-perfect volcanic cone rising above a landscape of World Heritage-listed vineyards.
