Madrid is known for its cultural and artistic heritage, lively nightlife, and a dynamic culinary scene.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Alcazar of Segovia and Raquel Lopez Damascene-Damasquinado. Explore hidden gems such as The Walls of Avila and The Four Posts. Venture out of the city with trips to Calzada medieval Puerto del Pico (in Cuevas del Valle), Iglesia del Salvador (in Talavera de la Reina) and Catedral de Segovia (in Segovia). There's much more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Hoces del Rio Duraton Natural Park, hike along Subida Pico Ocejon, browse for treasures at La Clandestina, and stroll through Chorrera de Despanalagua.

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.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Praia da Costa Nova and Mindelo Beach. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Fortaleza de Valenca and Mercado Bom Sucesso. Change things up with these side-trips from Porto: Santuario Nossa Senhora dos Remedios (in Lamego), Guimaraes (Igreja e Convento de Sao Francisco, Largo da Oliveira, &more) and Viseu (Chocolateria Delicia, Se Catedral de Viseu, &more). The adventure continues: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Capela das Almas, pause for some serene contemplation at Igreja do Carmo, examine the collection at O Navio Gil Eannes, and buy something for everyone on your list at Forum Aveiro.
