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.
Popular historic sites such as Cathedral of Santa Maria de Braga and Palacio da Bolsa are in your itinerary. For shopping fun, head to Forum Aveiro or Rua Santa Catarina. Step out of Porto to go to Ilhavo and see Praia da Costa Nova, which is approximately 1h 15 min away. There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Sandeman Cellars, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Clerigos Tower, look for gifts at Garrafeira do Carmo, and pick up some local products at Mercado Bom Sucesso.

For where to stay, maps, more things to do, and other tourist information, use the Porto online sightseeing planner .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Francisco de Sá Carneiro Airport. In May, daytime highs in Porto are 23°C, while nighttime lows are 13°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
