Portugal, Spain & the Douro River Valley (2018) : Queen Isabel
8 Days From Porto to Porto
An extraordinary journey designed for culturally curious travelers.
Your journey starts in Lisbon, the city that launched some of the world's most renowned explorers. Following the Douro River through Portugal and into Spain, you'll cruise past steeply terraced hillsides, quaint villages and acres of ripe vineyards. Dine on traditional fare in majestic Coimbra, the birthplace of six Portuguese kings; enjoy private tastings of Port; and explore Porto's historic Ribeira district, home to iconic rabelo boats, cutting-edge cuisine and a thriving art scene. Wind your way through the dramatic landscapes of the UNESCO-designated Douro Valley, heading ashore to visit charming quintas and meet the winemakers who operate them. In Salamanca, Spain, you'll see the city's famous university and take in a high-spirited flamenco show. Return to Portugal with a visit to the fortified village of Castelo Rodrigo and historic Guimaraes. There's no better way to discover Europe's best-kept secret than this scenic and all-inclusive river cruise!
