TRA 184 Portugal: an Historical and Gastronomic Journey

Course Description

We have designed this 18-day trip through Portugal for travellers who enjoy exploring historical sites and monuments, consuming fine food and wine, and relaxing on a quiet river cruise. We begin in Lisbon, then travel briefly to the interior plain before heading north parallel to the Atlantic coast until we reach the Douro River, where we board our private boat for a week of cruising, wine tastings, and traditional village meals, and ending in the country's second city, Porto, home of the fortified wine of the same name. Along the way we will visit Roman walled cities, Moorish palaces, Medieval monasteries, and Renaissance churches.
