>>Discover Porto & the Douro with Vinitur

Portugal is a paradise just waiting to be discovered by wine and food lovers. And the charm of Porto makes it the perfect starting place. Part of what’s romantic about Porto, is that it is a small city, one that feels intimate—like it’s yours alone to explore and enjoy.

With over 800 years of history, Porto is steeped in tradition. As you stroll its cobblestone streets, life slows down. You’ll see old-world cafés lined with antique tile comfortably intermixed with inventive new shops and gorgeous galleries.

Of course one reason you’re here is to get an understanding—and a real taste—of Port. Start with a visit or two at the venerable lodges where the wines mature. These are in the neighborhoods of Vila Nova de Gaia. Then on your inland tour, visit the vineyard estates called quintas that dot the hillsides.

We can arrange everything from transportation to tastings and beautiful lodgings in Portugal’s famed pousadas and boutique hotels.
