A 30-minute transfer by bus takes you to Passeio Alegre, a lovely green city square located where the Douro River meets the Atlantic Ocean. Here you will board the tramway, dating 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 a past when fishermen predominately lived here. Sample local wine and aperitifs along the way.
The next part of the outing takes you to the medieval Porto-Ribeira quarter. A walk through Ribeira's enchanting streets provides an intimate look into this historic part of town.
The tour concludes with a drive down Aliados Avenue, the center and heart of the city, before returning to the ship.
