Coimbra or Tour of Douro Valley


I'll be in Porto Wed-Fri Easter week. Perhaps on Thursday or Good Friday, I'd like to visit either Coimbra or take an organized tour of the Douro Valley. Are there tours of the Douro Valley on Good Friday or will a lot of places be closed? Will Coimbra (the town and university)be open on Friday?

I will only be able to visit one of these places. Please help me decide and tell me why you made that choice. I don't drink wine and so that is something to consider. However, I do like beautiful scenery, beautiful towns, interesting shops to browse in. Coimbra's attraction for me is the University town with its beautiful library. The Douro Valley's attraction for me is the beautiful scenery. So, what's your advice: The Douro or Coimbra?

Thank you for weighing in!
