Porto and the Douro Valley

Located in northern Portugal, Porto is the country's second-largest city and is the charming gateway to the stunning landscapes of the Douro Valley. Boasting some of the finest wine in Europe, a wealth of port houses and a rich gastronomy scene, Porto and the Douro Valley are absolute havens for those looking to seriously indulge.

Perched on the banks of the Douro river, Porto is a vibrant city, its medieval center adorned with colorful houses, blue hand-painted azulejo tiles, and Gothic churches. Thanks to British wine merchants beginning trade with Porto, the city now boasts a number of well-known port labels that have been producing the famous drink for centuries, and a visit to the riverside port houses makes for a delicious tasting session.

To the east of Porto, the Douro river meanders through this enchanting valley, surrounded by terraced vineyards and overlooked by traditional whitewashed quintas. These picturesque estates have been producing wine for centuries, and the Douro Valley is one of the world's oldest demarcated wine regions. Boat trips along the river offer access to some of the finest wine estates, as well as a rich selection of fantastic regional restaurants.
