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.
Dedicate the 2nd (Sun) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's still lots to do: take in the waterfront at Ribeira do Porto, wander the streets of Rua Santa Catarina, take in the spiritual surroundings of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), and take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I.

For more things to do, ratings, photos, and other tourist information, use the Porto trip app.

Barcelona, Spain to Porto is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and bus. Traveling from Barcelona to Porto, you'll gain 1 hour due to the time zone difference. In April in Porto, expect temperatures between 21°C during the day and 11°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Thu) so you can drive to Pinhao.

Northern Portugal travel guide

4.4
Natural beauty and rich cultural heritage make northern Portugal one of Europe's most desirable vacation destinations. Continuously populated for thousands of years, this verdant land features a lively coastline studded with dozens of modern resorts. Away from the ocean, the region transforms into a rolling countryside of small villages, vast national parks, lush vineyards, and World Heritage-listed prehistoric sites. Place the city of Porto at the top of your itinerary to discover Portugal's centuries-long history of outstanding wine production. Use the tourist-friendly city as your base, and devote some time to exploring the bucolic wine region stretching along the luxuriant banks of the Douro River.
