Northern Portugal

4.2
Natural beauty and rich cultural heritage make northern Portugal one of Europe's most desirable vacation destinations. Continuously populated for thousands of years, this verdant land features a lively coastline studded with dozens of modern resorts. Away from the ocean, the region transforms into a rolling countryside of small villages, vast national parks, lush vineyards, and World Heritage-listed prehistoric sites. Place the city of Porto at the top of your itinerary to discover Portugal's centuries-long history of outstanding wine production. Use the tourist-friendly city as your base, and devote some time to exploring the bucolic wine region stretching along the luxuriant banks of the Douro River. Before you visit Portugal, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.
