Day 01 | PORTO

Capital and gateway to the north of Portugal, Porto is both the city that provided a nation with a name and a fortified wine known world-wide: Port Wine

With its splendid geographical location on the mouth of the river Douro and an architectural heritage of exceptional quality, the historic center of Porto was declared UNESCO World Heritage in 1996. Porto is the capital of the North and the second largest city in the country; its hard-working inhabitants are noted for their commercial enterprise, always standing firm against outside impositions and foreign invaders, which explains why Porto has become known as the «unvanquished» city.

In this City Tour we will visit the most iconic sites of this old city.

Take time to admire the typical granite houses and monuments, with all the rhythms of its city life, its movement and intense retailing, the main square of Av. Aliados, the highest tower in the city the Tower of Clerigos, the Church of Sao Francisco all furnished with gold leaf, the world famous bookstore Livraria Lello & Irmão , the ultra modern Casa da Musica building, the Atlantic fortress of Castelo do Queijo, the old Cathedral, the Palacio da Bolsa (Chamber of Commerce), Ribeira (Riverside), and a river cruise under the city’s 6 bridges, from where you can enjoy an entirely different view of the city. 

Finish with a guided tour the Port Wine Old Cellars with a special tasting of these wines.

Day 02 | AMARANTE AND DOURO

Amarante: All visitors to Amarante will most certainly be impressed by two imposing natural features: the great Serra do Marão rising above the city in a series of majestic landscapes and the river Tâmega, giving added colour to the picturesque houses standing on its banks.

In the 13th century, St Gonçalo, a Benedictine monk and popular saint, arrived in this area, where he eventually settled after completing a pilgrimage to Italy and Jerusalem, later becoming the city´s patron saint. He is accredited with the building of a sturdy bridge over the Tâmega on the same site as the current one.

Amarante's sweets and cakes are extremely famous and easy to find in many of the region's cake-shops and cafés. Remember some of the names and make sure to taste them for yourself: 'papos de anjo', 'brisas do Tâmega', 'toucinho do céu', 'bolos de São Gonçalo', 'galhofas'. At the 1st Saturday of June takes place the Feast in honour of the Saint Gonçalo, much sought after by old spinsters in search of a husband.

No visitor to the region can afford to miss visiting the Mountains of Marão in order to admire its breathtaking landscape. Closeby is the delightful Ansiães Valley, where you can visit the trout farms on the right bank of the river Ovelha, providing you with an excellent pretext for enjoying a walk through the dense woods that surround them.

The village of Travanca da Serra, which is reached by the road leading to Peso da Régua, is an extremely picturesque spot, offering a magnificent panoramic view of the whole region.

In the Douro Valley, classified a world heritage site, the man gave birth to port wine and table wines of great quality. Port wine is the oldest Ambassador of Portugal. Cultivated in terraces of the Douro, has the honor to belong to one of the oldest demarcated regions in the world, since in 1756 was created the General Company of Agriculture and Vineyards of the Alto Douro. Here was also born the Douro table wines, which in recent decades have acquired great notoriety and border projection thanks to their quality, both in the reds as the whites and rosés. Green in summer, fire color in autumn, the Vineyard has given rise to a unique landscape classified by Unesco.
