Porto

— 3 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.
Take a break from Porto with a short trip to Old Cathedral of Coimbra (Se Velha de Coimbra) in Coimbra, about 1h 30 min away. There's lots more to do: take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, pause for some serene contemplation at Torre dos Clerigos, get into the urban bustle at Palacio da Bolsa, and admire the natural beauty at Jardins do Palacio de Cristal.
