Trip Summary
2 nights in Porto

Porto (also known as Oporto) is the second city of Portugal, and a hub for the northern part of the country in terms of arts, entertainment, culture and shopping. Previously conquered by the Celts, Romans and Moors, Porto has been a jewel in the Portuguese royal crown for nearly a millennium. The city offers art treasures, medieval cathedrals, museums, shopping, and delicious food and drink, all while tourists enjoy breathtaking views of the River Douro, which empties into the Atlantic just three miles from the city center. Don`t miss the center, in particular the Ribeira neighborhood, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Porto Cathedral (Sé), Clerigos Church and Tower, Palacio da Bolsa, the gardens at the Palacio de Cristal, Ponte Dom Luis I, the port wine lodges of Vila Nova de Gaia, the Funicular dos Guindais, Praça da Liberdade, Avenida dos Aliados, and so much more!



2 nights in Braga

Braga has been for centuries an archiepiscopal seat and pilgrimage site. There are a lot of beautiful churches to see here as well as the palace of the Archbishop dating from the 14-th century. Another important sight is the 16th Century Palácio dos Biscainhos. Just east of the town is one of Portugal's most famous tourist attraction, the Igreja de Bom Jesus de Monte - an impressive Baroque staircase symbolic of the 14 Stations of the Cross that leads upwards to a late 18th Century Church.



2 nights in Guimaraes

Guimaraes was the first capital of Portugal and the hometown of the first king of Portugal, Don Afonso Henriques. In 2001 the town's historical center was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The main attraction is the city's famous castle that dominates the skyline with eight square towers and a 27-metre-high dungeon. Nearby Guimarães, you can visit the Iron Age pre-Celtic settlement of Citânia de Briteiros, one of Portugal's most impressive archaeological sites.

In the Douro region, you can have unforgettable experiences related to the observation of a unique natural landscape, to the wine production, the local cuisine and the water sports.
