Romance of the Douro River
Spain & Portugal
The romantic Douro River meanders its way from Spain through Northern Portugal, delivering a breathtaking landscape of sculpted hills, terraced vineyards and scenic splendor. Explore the historic river and its environs during a seven-night cruise. Before embarking, enjoy Lisbon and its highlights, including the Alfama neighborhood, a hillside maze of cobbled lanes and ancient landmarks, and a U.S. Embassy briefing. See the University of Coimbra, founded in 1290 and embark the ship in lively Porto, a colorful, historic town spread across the banks of the river. In Vila Real, taste local pastries and tour an 18th-century palace. Sip the region’s famous port wine at a traditional quinta on a drive along the Douro Wine Road. Enjoy pretty Lamego with its quintessential blue and white tiled staircase and elegant, sun-kissed Salamanca in Spain!
