What to do

Douro Valley is one of the destinations of Fodor's Go List 2014

According to Fodor´s Go List 2014, Douro Valley in Portugal is one of the top 25 trips to book right now!


  • "The most beautiful wine country in the world borders a wonderfully wild coastline"

Why Go Now:

  • One of the world's oldest wine regions and a UNESCO world heritage site, the Douro Valley remains one of Europe's lesser-explored gems. But this may soon change. Recent awards for the country's wines, especially the affordable, deep, rich Douro reds and effervescent vinho verdes, have spurred a savvier hospitality industry all along the wine trail. Porto, Portugal's famed second city and the Douro Valley anchor, is at the ocean's edge, so a day at the beach is certainly not out of the question.
