In addition to the uniqueness of the area, there is a natural relation between the culture of wine, olive oil and almond tree, which joins to the diversity of the local architecture.
But it is mainly the authenticity and integrity of the cultural landscape, that seduces all those who visit the Douro Valley.
The landscape of the Douro enchants anyone.
The nature and the river awakens the aromas that complement each other, with a taste of the finest Port, born and raised in the vineyards that grow on these slopes.
We suggest a vacation package with many charms to offer.
Day 1: Arrival at Oporto airport. Reception and transfer to the hotel. Enjoy your first night in the city and dine in one of the many restaurants with exclusive view to the Douro river. Exquisite gastronomy and unique scenery will make your first night in Portugal unforgettable.
Days 2 and 3: Explore the city and its multiple treasures. Known for its wine (Port wine) we strongly suggest a visit to the wine cellars on the shores of the Douro river where you’ll get the chance to discover the secrets of the majestic Port wines. Take also the time to visit some of the many museums and cultural places of the city, and why not enjoy a cruise down the Douro river. Oporto is not only synonym of tradition but also a city where you can assist to some of the most contemporary cultural events. Don’t miss out in visiting the House of Music (Casa da Música) or the Serralves museum.
Days 4 and 5: The trip will follow the course of the Douro river to the Peso da Régua. Along the way, the river Douro and breathtaking scenery will be a constant. The journey through the valleys of the Douro vineyards, world heritage site, could be the purpose of this day trip, but the beautiful city of Peso da Régua awaits you, and deserves special mention. Start by making a riverside walk along the right bank of the Douro, feeling the atmosphere and admire the three existing bridges. There are many other attractions, such as the Mother Church or the former headquarters of the Real Companhia Velha, illustrating the history of agricultural labor in the region. Since you’re in the heart of the Douro and Port Wine, be sure to do a wine tasting and delight yourself with the tempting and tasty local cuisine.
Day 6: To continue your discovery by the Douro Valley, this day will be devoted to a river cruise, which will take you from Peso da Régua to Barca d’Alva. It is one of the most wonderful journeys in the Douro, because it goes through the heart of the demarcated Port wine region, several vineyards, dams and lots with breathtaking views. The return to Peso da Régua is made by train, that allows you to see the Douro River in a unique way.
Dia 7: On your return to Oporto, you will pass through several villages on the north bank of the Douro river, allowing a privileged contact with the culture, history and traditions.
Day 8: Check out from hotel and departure to Oporto airport.
