Learn about the rich tradition of Porto wine making while taking a stroll through Ferreira Cellars; a 300 year old wine cellar converted into a museum. Enjoy a private tasting experience of sweet red wines crafted by a family of winemakers dating back to 1751. After decompressing from the day in your hotel, head out for an upscale dining experience at Orangerie which boasts spectacular views of the city.

Upon docking in Peso da Régua, take a visit to the Douro Museum to learn more about the region’s deep history of winemaking. Afterwards, travel to the highly esteemed Quinta Nova Luxury wine estate to spend the rest of the day immersed in the harmony of nature.

A Dreamy Day in the Baroque Era | Vila Real

  • Travel onwards to the tranquil town of Vila Real which once housed the country’s most important royalty. Begin with a visit to the gothic Cathedral da Vila Real to experience a unique combination of ancient and contemporary architecture. The sounds of organ pipes bouncing around the old stone walls and modern stained glass create a striking ambience in this Roman Catholic church. Next, head over to Casa Mateus, a stunning 18th century manor house embodying the finest of Baroque era architecture. Enter a romantic dream-like state as you wander through the fanciful palace and beautifully decorated gardens. End your experience with a local wine tasting made from the sweet, dark grapes grown & produced onsite. Enjoy a traditional lunch at Terra de Montanha with a juicy steak or rich cheese & wine pairing. Wrap up the day atop the São Leonardo da Galafura viewpoint to stimulate your imagination with expansive views of the Douro region. 

Prehistoric Adventures in the Coa Valley

  • Make your way to Foz Côa to discover the beginnings of humanity at Coa Park World Heritage Site. Pique your curiosity by roaming the interactive museum full of prehistoric art dating back 28,000 years! Then, strap up for a 4-wheel drive adventure in the back of a jeep (or take a canoe down river) to get up close and personal with the rock art etched in stone by our primitive ancestors. 
  • After the adventure, satisfy your hunger at Restaurante Coa Museu while enjoying breathtaking views of the Coa Valley. In the afternoon, stop for your ultimate wine tasting experience with picturesque views of the Douro Valley at Quinta das Carvalhas in Pinhão.
