Jewels of Spain, Portugal & the Douro River

Delve into the rich cultural tapestry of ancient and modern Spain; Sail the verdant Douro river valley; And discover the enchanting towns and celebrated wines of Portugal.

Experience three legendary Spanish cities: Madrid, renowned for its museums, stately royal palace, and vibrant nightlife; Toledo, a living monument to the most influential empires in Western history; and Salamanca, the lovely “Golden City.”

Cruise through the UNESCO-designated Douro Valley, where grapes have been grown for two thousand years. Visit picturesque quintas and meet the winemakers who run them. In Porto, where the Douro River meets the Atlantic Ocean, explore architectural wonders, shop the bustling Rua de Santa Catarina, and sip the city’s storied Port wines at its preeminent cellars. Travel overland through the countryside and stop in Coimbra, Portugal’s third-largest city and birthplace of six of the country’s kings. Spend two nights in the colorful capital of Lisbon, the port city that launched navigator Vasco da Gama on the discovery of an ocean route to India. See the sights on a panoramic tour and taste the famous local dessert, pastéis de Belém, a custard pastry.

Reward your inner explorer with the “Jewels of Spain, Portugal & the Douro River,” a perfectly paced cruise/tour that blends captivating cities, picturesque villages, and unparalleled scenic cruising through this less-traveled corner of Europe.
