River Cruise Itinerary

  1. Day 1
    Lisbon
    Sat, Nov 23, 2024

    Lisbon has inspired explorers for centuries with its stunning setting at the Tagus River’s mouth. Its labyrinthine streets carry echoes of 16th-century navigators who sailed on the winds of the Age of Discovery. The city prospered greatly from its trade. And today’s streets are lined with the legacies of wealthy builders, including the Jerónimos Monastery and Belém Tower, stunning works that introduced Manueline architecture. Savoring local cuisine and port wine are favorite pastimes here. On any evening, the strains of fado spill from clubs in the historic Alfama District.

  3. Day 3
    Porto
    Mon, Nov 25, 2024

    Porto holds a place of great traditional importance. The town lends its name to the port wine produced in the region and throughout the nation. Located along a rocky embankment, the city boasts picturesque neighborhoods, fashionable restaurants and lively markets. Like Lisbon, Porto has a rich past; its historic center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site of narrow cobblestone streets brimming with romantic buildings spanning the centuries and a Romanesque cathedral. At the riverside, small barcos rabelos, boats once used to transport casks of wine, paint a charming scene.

  4. Day 6
    Salamanca
    Thu, Nov 28, 2024

    Founded by a Celtic tribe before the rise of the Roman Empire, Salamanca was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988 due to its beautifully preserved buildings. It is home to one of Europe’s oldest universities, founded in 1134, and its main square, bustling with students, is often called the most beautiful in Spain. The beauty of this richly historic city, besides the enormous Romanesque cathedral whose profile dominates the town, is the grace with which Salamanca retains a traditional Spanish village feel. It is a living museum that takes visitors back to the Middle Ages.

  5. Day 9
    Porto
    Sun, Dec 01, 2024

Wonderful river cruise with the greatest service by the Viking staff!

Although Viking is a bit pricey (since I have to pay the single supplement), the ship, the cruise, the stateroom, the food were all excellent. The crew members on the Viking Hemming were just wonderful. Every port the ship docked at on the Duoro River was worthwhile. I look forward to my next cruise with Viking. The entire experience far exceeded my expectations!

Everything went smoothly - the trip was quite memorable.
