Written Directions

Starting in Aveiro - OPorto - Amarante - Regua - Pinh?o - Alffndega da Fe

Scenery

At the start we?ll go till Oporto, which is UNESCO patrimony. Leaving the city where is the mouth of the Douro River, we'll ride side by side with the river. we'll meet mountains and valleys with it's vineyards. In September is the best time to travel this run as the surrounding slopes are very beautiful!

Drive Enjoyment

This road has a lot of sweeping curves going down and up along the mountains and valleys. The roads are ok, but need to be careful because many curves are tight.

Tourism Opportunities

A short stop is made in Oporto city for a coffee on a historical cafe in the old side of the city. Then we'll ride to meet the vineyard mountains where all the Oporto wine begins. The next stop will be in "Quinta do Seixo" to learn all about this wine. The ride day will rest in the fine Hotel Spa on the mountain.

Motorcycle Road Additional info

I spent good moments in Oporto with nice friends. The people are very friendly with a touch of the british society because it was some british families that started the famous Oporto wine. As we start moving for the inside of the country the view will change gradually and we?ll find only small villages and mountains/hills. The slops and the river give us great views. There are boat tours that make all the river way up. All the river slopes are vineyards. All this region lives around the production of the Oporto wine. Very good region to eat and drink with a lot of quality.
