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.
Explore Porto's surroundings by going to Quinta do Crasto (in Sabrosa) and Coimbra (University of Coimbra, Jardim Botanico, &more). There's lots more to do: snap pictures at Ponte de Dom Luis I, get into the urban bustle at Palacio da Bolsa, explore the activities along Douro River, and make a trip to Liberdade Square.

For ratings, traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, read Porto online tour planner.

Halifax, Canada to Porto is an approximately 13-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 4 hours traveling from Halifax to Porto. Expect a bit warmer temperatures when traveling from Halifax in October; daily highs in Porto reach °C and lows reach °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Barcelona.
