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.
Take a break from Porto with a short trip to University of Coimbra in Coimbra, about 1h 25 min away. There's lots more to do: snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, make a trip to Livraria Lello, explore the activities along Douro River, and let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour.
