See Portugal and Spain when you book a river cruise aboard the Viking Duoro
It’s no exaggeration to say that Portugal is one of the most spectacular places on earth. Friendly people, delicious cuisine and a rich history that stems all the way back to the 8th century. Traveling to this exciting destination is sure to guarantee you’ll have memories for a lifetime. But, instead of getting around in a car and risking getting lost or driving in unknown territory, you may want to consider the relaxation and comfort of a luxury river cruise.
During your 10-day cruise vacation, which includes the historic port cities of Lisbon and Porto, you’ll vacation in the lap of luxury aboard the Viking Duoro. This vessel not only has a panoramic sundeck complete with pool and jacuzzi, it’s also home to an upscale shopping boutique.
Your journey starts off the in the capital, Lisbon. After checking into your world-class hotel, you’ll have the option to explore this city on your own or simply kick back and relax. The next day, embark on an awe-inspiring half-day tour of Lisbon where you’ll visit spots like the old town, also known as the Bairro Alto and the Tower of Belém.
After a restful night you’ll take a scenic ride up the Portuguese coast to Porto where you’ll board your ship. You’ll cruise to picturesque spots like Régua & Pinhão. Go back in time as you wander with your guide through Lamego, a small town known around the world for the gorgeous Our Lady of Remedies Sanctuary. This church, which is more than 500 years old, is still visited by religious pilgrims today.
Your vacation will continue as you travel through Portugal and even the historical Spanish city of Salamanca. End your trip in Porto or extend it for two more days by journeying to the Portuguese town of Braga which has the oldest Christian archdiocese in the country and Santiago de Compostela, Spain, the capital of the Galician region.
