Porto, Portugal

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.
On the 4th (Sat), explore the activities along Douro River, then take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), and finally take in the local highlights with Walking tours. On the 5th (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: look for gifts at Livraria Lello, then take in panoramic vistas at Torre dos Clerigos, then contemplate the long history of Igreja da Ordem Terceira de São Francisco, and finally stroll through Cais da Ribeira.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Porto vacation planner.

If you are flying in from Portugal, the closest major aiport is Francisco de Sá Carneiro Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 28°C, and evening lows to 17°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 5th (Sun) to allow time for travel to Havana.

Havana, Cuba

Rome of the Caribbean

Cuba's capital and major commercial center, Havana manages to be very old and very modern at the same time.
Venture out of the city with trips to Matanzas (Pharmaceutical Museum & Cuevas de Bellamar), Cueva de Saturno (in Varadero) and Cayo Largo (Playa Paraiso, Sirena Beach, &more). There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Malecón of Havana, don't miss a visit to Plaza de la Catedral, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, and take in the local highlights with Walking tours.

Discover how to plan a Havana trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

Getting from Porto to Havana by flight takes about 15 hours. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from Porto to Havana due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Porto in July, expect Havana to be somewhat warmer, temps between 38°C and 26°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 24th (Fri) so you can go by car to Trinidad.

Built on sugar and seemingly preserved in molasses, the town of Trinidad attracts visitors with its well-aged 19th century architecture and rustic charm, showcasing the sounds, scents, and sights of days gone by.
Explore Trinidad's surroundings by going to Santa Clara (NaturArte, Che Guevara Mausoleum, &more), Cienfuegos (CasaHuella, Malecon de Cienfuegos, &more) and Topes de Collantes (Museo de Arte Cubano & Vegas Grande Waterfall). There's still lots to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Topes de Collantes, appreciate the views at San Luis Valley, enjoy the sand and surf at Ancon Beach, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Convento de San Francisco de Asis.

For reviews, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, use the Trinidad tour planner.
