Discover what the Portuguese have known forever; the Douro region is one of the most sublime destinations in Europe. One of the world’s oldest demarcated wine regions (since 1756), the Douro Valley showcases steep terrace vineyards carved into mountains, granite bluffs, whitewashed quintas (estates) and 18th-century wine cellars that charm visitors from around the world.

Start in the edgy-yet-sumptous city of Porto, with its historic center and exquisite food and wine, before wending your leisurely way along the Douro to some of Portugal's most beautiful towns and regions for seven nights.

History, superb food and wine, pretty villages and idyllic scenery are just the beginning. Finish your tour back in beautiful Porto, where you can raise a final farewell toast with its namesake wine.

The itinerary includes professional talks and content relevant to dentistry professionals.
