Travel to Porto, Portugal’s second-largest city, on our Highlights of Portugal trip
. Staggered rows of grand townhouses climb the steep river banks, and narrow cobbled streets, lined with cosy bars and quirky hole-in-the-wall cafes, sprawl in between the terraces. Porto is also home to longstanding port lodges where crushed grapes from the nearby Douro Valley are fortified with an aguardiente spirit, aged in barrels, and bottled. Join a tour to learn about the history and production of Portugal’s famed white, ruby and tawny ports and savour the different flavours in a delicious tasting session.
