About This Trip

Many people overlook Portugal. Spain, France and Italy dominate in visitor numbers and Portugal sits quietly on the edge of Europe, minding its own business and being quietly spectacular, it's in this quiet magnificence where its true allure lies. Your 11-day journey takes you through the heart of the Iberian Peninsula, blending the timeless allure of Lisbon and Porto with the scenic majesty of the Douro Valley. Your adventure commences in Lisbon, Portugal's sun-kissed capital, where history whispers from the cobbled streets and vibrant culture pulsates in its lively cafes and Fado houses. Spend two nights in a luxurious 4-star hotel, ideally situated to explore the city's historic neighborhoods, from the panoramic views of São Jorge Castle to the iconic Tower of Belém.

 

As you board the high-speed train to Porto, anticipate the transformative experience of travelling through Portugal's picturesque countryside. On arrival, the charm of Porto greets you — a city where the Douro River meets the Atlantic, famed for its stately bridges and sumptuous port wine. After a night in a premium 4-star hotel, embark on your 7-night CroisiEurope river cruise. Glide along the serene waters of the Douro, with landscapes of terraced vineyards and quaint villages unfolding before you. Each bend of the river brings a new discovery, from the terracotta rooftops of Porto to the ancient streets of Salamanca, Spain. This UNESCO World Heritage city enchants with its golden sandstone architecture and vibrant cultural scene.

 

Your voyage is more than a journey; it's an immersion into the soul of two countries. Revel in the diverse culinary delights, from Portuguese seafood dishes to Spanish tapas, each bite a celebration of local flavors. Embrace the rhythm of Iberian life as you explore historic sites, bask in the warmth of the Mediterranean sun, and unwind aboard your floating luxury hotel. This trip isn't just a holiday; it's a tapestry of experiences, weaving together the rich history, culture, and beauty of Portugal and Spain into an unforgettable adventure.
