When most of us think of a Europe river cruise, we think “Danube”, or “Rhine”, or maybe “Seine”. If you have never visited Portugal, you are in for a treat; or, see a dramatic new side of this beautiful country on the Douro River. Some of the most spectacular river cruise scenery can be found in Portugal along the DOURO River! The river takes you on a winding easterly course between steeply terraced vineyards, stopping at ports of call largely unchanged for centuries with charming town squares, colorful castles, baroque mansions and historic monasteries. At the Spanish border you can indulge in a scenic ride into Spain to visit the medieval city of Salamanca before your leisurely voyage back to Porto.
