Your tour begins with a short but scenic drive that takes you to central Porto. You will stop to view the exterior of Clerigos Church, a baroque and rococo building dating from the 18th century, and the Porto Cathedral, a 12th-century baroque building that began as a Gothic structure. Then, from the banks of the Douro River, you will embark a riverboat cruise to enjoy panoramic views of Porto. Clinging to the opposite bank of the Douro and nestled among impressive bridges, sits the city of Vila Nova de Gaia — the port wine capital of the world. You will visit a well-known port wine cellar and learn all about the process of making the city’s famous wine. After your lesson, savor a taste of this local favorite before heading back to your ship.
