If you are in Portugal do not miss this fantastic drive of the Douro valley. The land scape is magnificent and breathtaking. We ended the drive in Pinhao with its fantastic railway station. Go there. Yona S

Definitely a highlight of our trip was driving through the Douro Valley! We've been to a lot of wine regions around the world and this one ranks right up there. I think the only way to do it is with a car. A wine tour...More
