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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Bom Jesus do Monte and Centro Historico de Guimaraes. Get some historical perspective at Igreja da Ordem Terceira de São Francisco and Capela das Almas. Venture out of the city with trips to Convento de Santo Antonio Church (in Aveiro), Praia da Costa Nova (in Gafanha da Encarnacao) and Santuario de Santa Luzia (in Viana do Castelo). There's much more to do: test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, learn about winemaking at Taylor's Port, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Santuario Nossa Senhora dos Remedios.

To see where to stay, reviews, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Porto tour planner.
