Full description
After departing from Porto, you will head for your first stop in the town of Amarante. With its traditional streets and buildings made from local granite, you can explore unique sites and noteworthy monuments, such as the Convent and Church of São Gonçalo, and a beautiful and imposing bridge. If you prefer, you can also visit the municipal Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso Museum.

You will then continue your trip through the city of Régua on your way to Pinhao, with a stop at a viewing point in Mesão Frio. In Régua, you can admire the beautiful stained glass windows of Casa do Douro. These windows illustrate the history of how barrels of wine were first transported in Rabelo boats down the Douro River.

Once in Pinhão, you'll see the city's famous train station, built in 1879, as well as the Douro Museum where you'll become familiar with the whole history of port wine. Pinhão is a land of rivers, valleys, vineyards and houses climbing up the slopes, making this one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. You will walk along the river, passing through the train station with its typical tiles before heading to a farm for a port wine tasting, the perfect way to finish off this adventure.
