We took a day trip up the river , going out from Porto on train, returning on a river cruise ship. We sailed through the two big locks in two of the dams across the river. We also walked along the river in Porto going...More
The Rio Douro is the main reason that Porto became the second biggest city in Portugal. It was a safe harbour for many ships and today is a popular river cruise destination. The river flows swiftly and is used to transport goods to market.
The 'Rio Douro' is a pretty broad subject by Trip Advisor standards, as it runs for hundreds of kilometers, but my review is centred on the section running through Porto and out to the Atlantic.

It will be surely cold weather and the scenery wil not be as green as in summer. However, if you find the same kind of joyful Portuguese people we met, it can be a good experience. Our boat had glass windows in the dining room, thus, you won't be cold in the meals, and you could eat and drink at your will during the meal time. Nevertheless, the way back may not be so glorious, since it will be night and the train won't offer the same wonderful vista that we had in summer.
