Discover the pulse of Portugal from the beating heart of the Douro River. Begin in Lisbon, the Portuguese capital. Stroll the cobblestone streets amid a palette of pastel shades. Spy Arab influences and ancient treasures and venture to Sintra with its palaces, castles and Portuguese Riviera coastline. Follow the Atlantic to Cabo da Roca, the most westerly point of mainland Europe and explore Porto before embarking on the Douro. River cruise beneath tower-ing hills and landscaped vines under the watch of medieval towns. Cross into Spain and visit Salamanca with a fiery flamenco show. Savour dinner at a traditional quinta, sample Mateus and local specialties, take in a folklore show and enjoy the Captain’s Dinner before returning to Porto.
