Begin in the cosmopolitan capital city of Lisbon, where richly tiled buildings line narrow cobblestoned streets. Visit palaces and lush vineyards, tasting wine and enjoying a variety of local cuisine along the way. Be inspired by medieval Sintra and the wild beauty of Cabo da Roca cliffs, where the western edge of continental Europe meets the Atlantic Ocean. Board the MS Douro Elegance for your 7-night river cruise in Porto and sail into a land of medieval villages, heritage sites, wineries and the baroque-era Mateus Palace. You’ll travel into Spain to classical Salamanca to experience a traditional flamenco show. Then toast your many experiences with a glass of vintage port, opened with traditional Portuguese flair.
