Your Destinations —
In northern Portugal, with the Atlantic Ocean as a backdrop, the ancient city of Porto is characterised by its narrow streets, picturesque buildings and colourful local markets. Much more than just a place of pilgrimage for Port Wine lovers, Porto is steeped in history and is the ideal setting for a city break combined with cultural discovery. Straddling the River Douro just a few kilometres inland from the Atlantic, Porto, in the country's northwest, is closer to Spanish Galicia than it is to Lisbon. Porto possesses an appealing pan-Iberian atmosphere to complement its many historic charms. Porto's historic centre is the Ribeira district, full of UNESCO World Heritage sites and monuments. Old churches and staircases peer around every corner, and the friendly, inviting locals make discovering this fascinating city a pleasurable experience.
Discover the colourful valleys, sprawling vineyards, and striking views of the Douro Valley. This beautiful region of fertile hills and vineyards, classified as a World Heritage Site, produces flavourful Port wine – one of Portugal's greatest national treasures. This region has been producing wine for nearly two thousand years and its landscape represents the full range of activities associated with winemaking - terraces, quintas, villages, chapels, and winding roads. Why not book a vineyard tour or tasting, and take home some souvenir bottles?
