Lisbon — 3 nights

Built on seven hills, Lisbon has experienced a renaissance in recent years, making it the cultural star of Portugal.

The adventure continues: get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Lisbon Oceanarium, don't miss a visit to Elevador de Santa Justa, take in the spiritual surroundings of Mosteiro dos Jeronimos, and get engrossed in the history at Carmo Archaeological Museum.

Porto — 3 nights

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.
Start off your visit on the 5th (Wed): see Oporto Buggy Adventure, stroll through Ribeira do Porto, and then take in the views from Ponte de Dom Luis I. Keep things going the next day: get a taste of the local shopping with Livraria Lello, contemplate the long history of Porto Cathedral (Se Catedral), and then get the lay of the land with Walking tours.

To see reviews, traveler tips, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Porto tour builder website.
