A half-hour transfer by motor coach brings you to Passeio Alegre, a lovely garden that graces the point where the Douro River meets the Atlantic Ocean.

Here you will board the tramway, which dates from the early 20th century, for a memorable ride along the riverfront. Take in the beautiful views and discover old sections of town that offer a glimpse into the past, when fishermen predominately lived here.

The next part of your outing takes place in the medieval Porto-Ribeira quarter. A walk through the enchanting streets gives you an intimate look at this historic part of town, while a stop at a neighborhood tavern lets you savor refreshments in an Old-World atmosphere.

Sample some wine and cheese before taking advantage of free time to wander this intriguing area on your own. Be sure to notice the 19th-century iron bridges in the distance and the traditional Rabelo boats clustered around the pier. They were once used to transport casks of port wine from the Douro Valley to the cellars in Gaia.

Fascinating sights continue to unfold as you travel to your ship through the heart of the city, a panoramic drive that reveals how Oporto developed into a modern town while still honoring its past.
