Régua / Pinhão

Visit the Palacio de Mateus, home to what are considered to be the most beautiful gardens in Portugal, as well as a wealth of intricate designs embedded within the furnishings, paintings, and the very foundations of the palace.

Day 4

Vega de Terrón

Enjoy a drive to the UNESCO World Heritage SIte of Salamanca, a “living museum” whose golden sandstone architecture dates back to the Middle Ages, as you will discover on your guided tour – as well as the many other delights the city has to offer.

Sample local delicacies later in the day, from bôlas de Lamego – bread stuffed with smoked ham, to presunto – dry-cured ham, to Espumante – a refreshing Portuguese sparkling wine.

Enticing Douro Cruise Review

“As an experienced traveller myself, the allure of the Douro River has been a constant pull throughout my travels. Hence, my third trip through the Douro has been nothing less than extraordinary. Even after having experienced it twice before, there’s always something new to find, to discover – especially considering how the itinerary has been crafted to include authentic, exciting experiences. I adore the focus on local culture, as well as the local delicacy sampling; it truly allows you to immerse yourself in the different cultures you encounter along the way, each as magnificent as the last.”
