  • A Week on the River Douro

Cruising a scenic river valley is a thoroughly relaxing way to spend a week, especially when it’s nestled in a renowned wine region. Beginning in Porto, you’ll explore the city’s sights beyond its famous tipple. Heading down the beautiful River Douro, you’ll learn about port, sampling it over a delicious wine-estate lunch. Choose from delights like exploring hilltop castle ruins, the lovely sand-coloured city of Salamanca, or a national park by boat; and perhaps visit UNESCO-listed Guimarães, birthplace of Portugal.

Day 1

UK - Porto

 

Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your flight to Porto. Transfer to the port to embark Queen Isabel (5T).

 

Day 2

Porto - Cruising the River Douro - Entre-os-Rios

 

There’s much more to Portugal’s second city than its eponymous fortified wine - historic architecture, cutting-edge design, fabulous food and a laid-back vibe. Join a panoramic tour including the 19th century Stock Exchange Palace, the hilltop cathedral and Santa Catarina. Or take a walking tour and climb 249 steps to the top of Clérigos Tower for the best view in Porto; visit Livraria Lello, São Bento railway station; and the Church of Saint Francis, the city’s finest example of Gothic architecture. Later, we cruise up the Douro towards Entre-os-Rios.

 

Day 3

Cruising the River Douro - Régua - Pinhão

 

Today is all about wine, which has been cultivated in the Douro River Valley since ancient Roman times. Learn the history of Port during your visit to the Douro Museum, then treat yourself to a tasting and a hearty, rustic-style lunch at a family-owned wine estate.

 

Day 4

Pinhão - cruising the River Douro - Vega de Terrón

 

Our ship winds its way through the pristine, UNESCO-protected landscapes of the Douro River Valley. At a prestigious port wine estate, we tour the state-of-the-art facility and sample some exceptional Ports in a tasting room with spectacular views of the Douro Valley. Or join an invigorating hike through lush vineyards. Later, relax over a glass of wine at a local quinta.

 

Day 5

Vega de Terrón (Salamanca) - Barca d’Alva

 

Visit the historic university town of Salamanca - the ‘Golden City’ - famous for its sand-coloured buildings and abundance of churches, or see the region’s spectacular natural beauty, with a small boat cruise in a national park. Rejoin the ship in Barca d’Alva.

 

Day 6

Barca d’Alva (Castelo Rodrigo) - Pocinho - Cruising the River Douro - Régua

 

Enjoy breathtaking scenery this morning as your ship cruises the UNESCO-listed upper Douro River Valley. Visit the medieval village of Castelo Rodrigo and its hilltop castle ruins - the view from the top is incredible and the village is a charming place to wander. You’ll also get to indulge in a wine tasting and sample delicious local treats such as honey, almonds, olive oil and cheeses. Or, opt to visit Portugal’s first archaeological park, Foz Côa, where Palaeolithic art was etched into the schist walls around the river many millennia ago. Please note: Exploring these sites will require considerable physical fitness.

 

Day 7

Cruising the River Douro - Porto (Guimarães)

 

Choose to visit Guimarães, the town where Portugal was born. This UNESCO-listed town was the home of the first king of Portugal, Afonso I, and has preserved its old beauty. Or opt to explore one of Porto’s oldest areas, picturesque Ribeira, considered the soul of the city. In the evening, a special Gala Dinner will be prepared for you.
