Description

PORT WINE & ITS CITY

(4 HOURS TOUR)

The Douro River in OPORTO has five bridges two railway and three road bridges.

Schedule

Leave the pier and after a short drive along the coast we will reach Foz an elegant residential area of Oporto located at the point where the river Douro reaches the Atlantic Ocean. Drive on always by the riverside until we come to the old district Ribeira(classified World Heritage). Walk through the narrow streets to admire the old medieval houses built of stone (some dating back from the 12th century) looking to the old quays and river. Visit the nearby Church of St. Francisco, known as the golden church as its gothic vauts and walls were covered with gold in the barroque period. As soon as we cross the iron bridge over Douro river we are entering the district where port wine rules. Here we shall visit one of the most important wine cellars where you will learn the long process of wine making, the rules of ageing and where you can taste the different kinds: tawny, ruby, dry and vintage. Useless to say you can buy as many bottles as you wish. Return to the  pier at Leixões after passing the modern districts of Oporto.
