Cruise Douro Serenity – 7 nights

Cruise Douro Serenity – 7 nights

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

Enjoy the exquisite ambience of one of Europe’s most impressive river landscapes – the unique Douro Valley. The modern MS Douro Serenity stands out for its excellent design and tasteful interior, further increasing the feel-good factor for you as you glide through the spectacular Douro Valley, the origin of Port Wine.

Enjoy the liveliness of Porto in the charming alleys of the old town. In Guimarães, stroll through the “cradle of Portugal” or discover the wonderful pilgrim town of Lamego with its gothic cathedral and impressive flight of stairs. One of the special charms of this route is the subsequent short journey to north-western Spain, where you can walk in the footsteps of the pilgrims.
