1. Porto, Portugal
Porto was once the last stop of adventurers on their way across the Atlantic to the New World. The cliché that Lisbon shows off and Porto just works is a well-worn metaphor that fails to fully do justice to the city's innumerate charms. History dwells around every corner, and more than ever, Porto is a place determined to hold on to its own and distinct identity.
