This eight-day cruise introduces you to the cultural, natural and historic wonders to be found along Portugal’s glittering River of Gold, the Douro. You’ll board your ship at the point where the river meets the Atlantic Ocean, in Porto, a beautiful city which is the birthplace of port wine and which has a charming maritime heritage to explore. From there you’ll travel upstream, passing through a land of hilltop villages, vineyards and medieval towns before arriving in Spain, where you’ll have the opportunity to explore Salamanca, one of the country’s most beautiful and historic cities and home to one of the oldest universities in Europe.
