So beautiful it is a UNESCO World Heritage site, the Douro Valley should never be
overlooked as a holiday destination. Cruising up the river is, by all means, the best way to take in the terraced vineyards of the region. Once you have reached the wonderfully peaceful heart of the Douro, there are some great places to really switch off at. Visiting local vineyards is a must, and if you are fortunate enough to be staying in Autumn, joining in with the harvest is a unique way to get involved and say you helped produce the wine of that season.
