Porto

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 16th (Thu), awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area, then stroll through Cais da Ribeira, and then take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I.

Plan my Porto trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

You can fly from Lisbon to Porto in 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train; or drive. Traveling from Lisbon in April, you will find days in Porto are slightly colder (21°C), and nights are about the same (11°C). Finish up your sightseeing early on the 16th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
