Porto — 6 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.
Popular historic sites such as Palacio da Bolsa and Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral) are in your itinerary. Get outdoors at Douro River and Praia da Luz. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Porto: Coimbra (Coisas e Sabores & Alma Lusitana). Next up on the itinerary: stroll around Museu Serralves, look for gifts at Aramarte Acessorios, take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I, and go for a stroll along the water at Ribeira do Porto.

For reviews, where to stay, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Porto sightseeing website.

Luanda, Angola to Porto is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Luanda to Porto due to the time zone difference.
