On day three choices includes a visit to one of the Douro Valley’s oldest farms, with food tasting near Peso da Régua and an overnight in Pinhão.

The Avalon Alegria – like the rest of the company’s fleet of Suite Ships – will feature Panorama Suites on two full decks. Each suite has 200sqf of living space, open-air balconies and beds facing the views. In addition, the Alegria, will have a pool on the Sky Deck.
