Porto is a fascinating and vibrant city that is rapidly becoming one of Western Europe´s most respected tourist destinations. The city boasts an extensive history, interesting tourist attractions and outstanding tourist facilities. There is a lot to see and do in Porto, and this diverse city will appeal to a wide range of visitors. Porto is a historic and varied city, from the warren of narrow streets that make up the ancient Ribeira district through to the grand plaza of the Trindade district. The region is famed for the production of Port, which is still stored and matured in the vast cellars that stretch along the banks of the Douro River

Exploring the Douro Valley. The journey through Port wine country is one of the most pleasant travel experiences in Southern Europe, passing by many of the famous vineyards along the way. We have selected different quinta wine farms to try the different port wines of the Douro Valley.
