The Douro River Cruises
Discover one of Europe’s most picturesque rivers – the River of Gold
Not only is historic Oporto the second largest city in Portugal, it's also where the Douro ends its journey after crossing Portugal to meet the Atlantic.
The waterway flows through Portugal's famous wine region of Alta Douro, where the sun-kissed countryside splashed with steeply-terraced vineyards has produced wine for the past 2,000 years.
Delightful indeed is a Douro river cruise through what was once the heart of the ancient kingdom of Portugal, where there are plenty of places and sites to visit and explore. And don't forget to raise your glass with a toast of 'saude!' as you try Portugal's most famous drink.
