And in Porto’s ancient Ribeira district, find picturesque rabelo boats, cutting-edge cuisine and a thriving art scene. Sail from Porto through the breathtaking, UNESCO designated Douro Valley, where vines cling to precipitous hillsides. Visit charming quintas and meet the winemakers who operate them. See Salamanca, “The Golden City," and visit its famed university (where Columbus planned his pivotal journey) before enjoying a flamenco show. Then return to Portugal with a visit to the walled village of Castelo Rodrigo and historic Guimarães. Revel in the captivating cities and striking scenery of the serene Douro River Valley on this perfectly paced cruise/tour. Who will enjoy this cruise/tour Wine connoisseurs hoping to indulge in this region’s most celebrated beverage, Port, and those wanting to discover Europe’s best-kept secret, the Douro River, with its spellbinding natural beauty and cultural heritage.
