Your Tour through the Douro Valley and Port Wine should end with a visit to the emblematic city of Porto, the 2nd largest city of Portugal, whose history and development are closely linked to the Douro Valley. Placed at the mouth of the Douro River, Porto is a romantic and chic city, once the strategic point of the Port Wine transportation. In the past, the vineyards of Douro were located hundreds of miles away from the ports. The solution was to carry the wine down the Douro River to Porto, the city right by the Atlantic Ocean where it was loaded onto ships.
With an exquisite architectural and landscape value, a trip through this authentic city is mandatory. Your private driver will guide you through the most important sites of Porto, including its historic center (classified as World Heritage site), notable streets, squares, old and modern monuments, gardens and the riverside area. And at the end, you will cross the characteristic Luis I Bridge and you will have a fortified Port Wine tasting in one of the most famed Port Wine Cellars. Accommodation in Porto.
