The pictures do not prepare you for the verticality of the Douro valley. It is spectacular, and there are a lot of activities to do but my favorite is to climb up to the bridge and watch the river go by.

No visit to Porto should exclude time along and on the Douro river. Cafes and restaurants allow visitors a chance to sit and view the boat traffic — and perhaps a street entertainer or two. Boats ferry passengers to the Gaia side, home to famed...More

There's a railway lone that follows the Douro from Porto for a long way. If we go back that's what we will do, it looks stunning. Stay in Pinhao and move out form there. What a lovely holiday to plan
