Porto & the Douro Valley

Porto & the Douro Valley Holidays


Charismatic Porto rises from the banks of the Douro River with tiers of pastel hued houses climbing the hillsides. The city’s charming old town is a medley of gothic churches, bustling markets and incredible bars and restaurants. Across the Luis I bridge to Vila Nova de Gaia, historic Port caves line the waterside interspersed with restaurants and cafes.

Following the winding river east reveal one of the most scenic drives in Europe and Portugal’s premier wine region, the Douro Valley. Here terraces of vines line the riverbanks, offering stunning hiking trails, beautiful viewpoints and a wonderful selection of peaceful retreats. Take a river cruise, join a vineyard tour or relax at a lovely spa resort.
