Jewels of Spain, Portugal & the Douro River (2018) : Queen Isabel

13 Days From Lisbon To Madrid

OVERVIEW

Two intriguing countries and one dramatic river equal a grand adventure

Before setting sail on the Douro River, experience three legendary Spanish cities: Salamanca, the lovely "Golden City"; Madrid, renowned for its museums, stately royal palace and vibrant nightlife; and Toledo, the city of El Greco and a magnificent tribute to the three great cultures that forged Spain.

Cruise through the UNESCO-designated Douro Valley, where grapes have been grown for 2,000 years, visiting picturesque quintas and meeting the winemakers who operate them, as well as tasting the wine. Get even closer to natural treasures at the Quinta Aveleda's gardens, offering an enchanting landscape that boasts a cascading waterfall, graceful swans swimming, peacocks flaunting their colors and so much more. Visit the walled village of Castelo Rodrigo, a site that dates back to the 12th century, and the pilgrimage town of Lamego to see the monumental baroque Sanctuary of Nossa Senhora dos Remedios. Travel through the verdant countryside to Obidos, a charming hilltop town that has entranced visitors since the 13th century en route to Portugal's colorful capital of Lisbon.

Reward your inner explorer with the "Jewels of Spain, Portugal & the Douro River," blending captivating cities, picturesque villages and unparalleled scenic cruising through this less-traveled corner of Europe.
