There is a place in Europe you need to discover. It is an amazing river Douro, which is located in Portugal. All those popular rivers like Danube, Rhone and Rhine are specific in many ways, but the jewel like Douro represents a genuine mix of history and nature at one place. This is combined in the best way in Douro river cruises that usually visits all important places of Portugal.
On this type of cruises, everything is about beauty. Very often, the trip goes from the city of Porto, which is included in UNESCO heritage cities. You can see the reasons for this at every step. The valley where Douro belongs is famous for cultural and historical importance. While cruising, you can see all vineyards that give the most popular port wine. People are producing this wine as part of tradition, so you will feel the taste of this wine on a cruise ship as well.
Other attractions are more than visible. Vibrant colors of small villages will certainly grab you attention. They have not changed for centuries and the old spirit is still present. People who live there wave to the ships and those people give a special beauty to the whole region. The Portuguese are maybe the friendliest people around and it is obvious when you meet them. Smile is part of their look in every situation. Kindness is part of their philosophy. All travelers of Douro river cruises will notice that.
Spain is very close, especially when we consider that Douro passes through this country as well. For that reason, a lot of influences will be present. You will probably get the mix of both Portugal and Spain. Taste some port wine with paella or drink Portuguese coffee while watching popular Flamenco dance. Both cultures have a lot to offer. Therefore, try to feel the best out of it.
Most Douro river cruises usually last 8 days, which is sometimes short, especially when you experience all pleasures of Portugal and Spain. You will certainly wish that cruise lasts a little bit longer. Take a glass of the famous port wine, enjoy in Portuguese cuisine and watch the most beautiful scenery of Douro Valley while on a cruise ship. This kind of experience will certainly convince you that you are traveling through one of the most amazing areas in the whole Europe. Cruising on waters of Douro river is always exciting.
