There are probably not many people in the Western world that have not heard about Port wine. Where does it come from? The Douro Valley Region, in Portugal. And what is the Douro? It’s the river without which there would be no Port.
You can find loads of online info about this river (including its wildlife) but I’m going to make this easy for you and give you a quick recap:
The most interesting way to get to know Douro is probably with a river cruise but this river has its own railway line, which offers some amazing views as well. If you have a pile of money
burning a hole in your pocket and have no idea how to spend it I can give you my bank details you can also take a tour in a helicopter!
