Cruise Douro Queen – 7 nights

8 days / 7 nights cruise through the Douro Valley and visit to Salamanca.

The Douro Valley is characterised by its steep slopes and stunning terraces. With good reason, this region has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On this trip, you will explore the beauty of Porto’s architecture and travel back in time, visiting several charming corners of northern Portugal. In the Spanish city of Salamanca, a “living museum”, you can practically touch history by admiring its centuries-old buildings.
