Itinerary

Fly to Lisbon
Day 1-3

Porto, Portugal

After soaking up the culture in and around Lisbon, head north to Porto, and consider stopping to explore the whitewashed streets in the historic walled centre of Obidos and the picturesque canals of Aveiro. Hop aboard a moliceiro, Aveiro's answer to the gondola, to wind your way through the water and admire the pretty facades of the buildings lining the canals.

Spend two nights in the centre of the city, overlooking the famed port houses of Porto. Although famed for its local drink, there is more to the city than just its port - colourful buildings line the streets of the medieval centre, Ribeira, and baroque churches overlook the city rooftops. A mouth-watering destination for foodies, the gastronomy in Porto is divine, whether in a traditional bar serving tapas-like petiscos, or in one of the city's Michelin-starred restaurants.

Accommodation: The Yeatman ( 2 nights )
Day 3-6

Lamego, Portugal

After exploring all that Porto has to offer, head east, following the river along the spectacular Douro Valley. Admire the incredible scenery from the luxurious Six Senses Douro Valley, a haven for both wine lovers and those looking for a wellness retreat. Spend three nights here, relaxing at the spa and enjoying delicious regional cuisine. If you can tear yourself away from the hotel, explore the Douro Valley on board your very own private boat, stopping at traditional quintas to taste the local wine, surrounded by vineyards and breathtaking views.

Accommodation: Six Senses Douro Valley ( 3 nights )
Fly home from Porto
