Douro River Cruises

The UNESCO-designated Douro River Valley boasts spectacular vistas, storied towns, and a celebrated winemaking history; it's unspoiled in every way and yours to explore on a Douro river cruise.

Rambling vineyards and charming farms called quintas cling to the valley's steep hillsides, creating an incomparable backdrop to one of Europe's most pristine regions, and to Port country-the oldest demarcated wine region in the world. Explore cosmopolitan Lisbon, uncovering a treasure trove of Old World architecture. Visit Coimbra, the birthplace of six Portuguese kings; Porto, the beautiful "City of Bridges"; and Guimaraes, the 12th-century capital of Portugal. Travel to Salamanca, Spain, a gem of a city whose buildings have taken on a golden glow over the centuries. Feast on a traditional meal at a family-owned winery; enjoy a traditional Spanish lunch with a flamenco show in Salamanca; and taste a variety of wines-including Port, of course-from village vineyards all along the way. Uncover a land of breathtaking beauty and genuine charm, meeting warm-hearted people who welcome visitors with open arms.
