Posted by Wine Tourism in Portugal on 25-May-2018 12:32:00

Even though Douro Valley is not a secret for many travelers, the truth is that Douro River cruises tend to be off the beaten track in comparison to other popular rivers in Europe, such as the Rhine, Danube or Seine.

However, a wine cruise in Douro is full of unforgettable experiences that will surprise those who are not familiar with the Douro Valley region. From Porto - Portugal's second major city - full of historic corners, monuments, and tradition to the heart of the Douro Valley, with slopes covered with vineyards, a cruise in the Douro River is a must-do experience for those visiting Porto.
