Wind your way through Por­tu­gal

Central Telegraph - - ESCAPE -

A CRUISE on Por­tu­gal’s vine­yard-lined Douro River on a new five-star ship for Euro­pean river cruise­line Riviera Travel forms the cen­tre­piece of a fly, cruise and tour pack­age from Aus­tralia to Por­tu­gal in April next year.

Riviera Travel – new to the Aus­tralian cruise mar­ket – has part­nered with lo­cal hol­i­day pack­ager Cruise Trav­eller to cre­ate an ex­clu­sive 20-night fly/cruise/tour pack­age.

The jour­ney show­cases the vine­yards, cob­ble­stone streets, baroque churches, an­cient forts, ter­raced hills, medieval vil­lages and the world’s old­est wine re­gion, the Douro Val­ley, that have made Por­tu­gal an in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar des­ti­na­tion.

Cruise Trav­eller’s new 20-night Por­tu­gal Per­fec­tion pack­age com­bines a six-night over­land tour of Por­tu­gal with Back Roads, ho­tel stays in Lis­bon and Porto and a seven-night Douro River cruise aboard Riviera Travel’s new 126-guest river ship Douro El­e­gance.

Eight com­ple­men­tary tours to vine­yards, port cel­lars and more are in­cluded while on the ship. Trav­ellers leave Aus­tralia on April 16 and the itin­er­ary be­gins in Lis­bon with two nights’ ac­com­mo­da­tion.
