The Douro River is the third largest river in the Iberian Peninsula and from the time of the Romans the river has been personified as the god, Durius. Flowing gracefully through Portuguese vine-land, the area is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


Destinations in the Douro River


The second largest city in Portugal, Porto is one of the oldest European cities and its core was proclaimed a World Heritage Site by UNESCO with history dating back to early Celtic peoples. Along with its famed Porto wine, the city is popular for its many landmarks including the Clérigos Tower, Serralves and Igreja de São Francisco. Tourists may enjoy Porto with a guided bike tour or wine tastings.

Peso da Régua

Inhabited by Romans and Celts in ancient times, Régua is known for its stunning views and great tasting Porto Wine. Experience the local history and culture at the Museu do Douro or go on one of the many great wine tasting tours.


Critical to European history, from birthing the King Alfonso XI “The Avenger” to the battle of Salamanca, where Wellington decisively defeated one of Napoleon’s armies. Whilst there, enjoy landmarks such as the Plaza Mayor, Catedral Nueva and Casa de las Conchas, the House of Shells. Enjoy the city’s many sights through a guided tour by a local expert.
