About the Destinations:
Porto is a city of endless charms that combines a rich history, old buildings covered in colorful azulejos (hand-painted tiles), modern architecture, a picturesque riverfront and a high-spirited atmosphere that celebrates the joy of life.
With three World Heritage Sites recognized by UNESCO, there is no shortage of reasons to visit the Douro Valley, one of the most stunning landscapes in all of Portugal. In the historic center of the city of Porto, you will find remarkable buildings lining the riverbanks. Many of these buildings are directly linked to the production of wine and bear witness to the urban development that this production has fueled over the years. On the opposite bank of the river, you will find the city of Vila Nova de Gaia, a hive of commercial activity and home to the famous Port wine cellars.
Lisbon, the cosmopolitan capital of Portugal and Europe's second-oldest capital (after Athens), has now become the new "it" destination for tourists visiting Europe. Called "The City of the Sea" and "The City of the Explorers", this unique locale was once home to the world's greatest explorers, including Vasco da Gama, Magellan, and Prince Henry the Navigator. Lisbon is also the first true world city, the capital of an empire spreading over all continents, from South America (Brazil) to Asia (Macao, China; Goa, India).
