On the Route of Discoveries
Guided tour starting off with a visit to the World of Discoveries Museum, an interactive museum and theme park, which rebuilds the fantastic odyssey of the Portuguese navigators.
We proceed along the Douro River’s shore until Foz’s breakwater / seawall, going through the locations and monuments connected to the Discoveries and the heroic acts of the Portuguese people.
Our guides/ interpreters speak several languages and explain briefly the adventure of the navigators and mainly of the people of Porto which, in land, made this adventure possible.
On the way back, we finish our trip in Casa do Infante Museum or Casa da Rua da Alfândega Velha , which is one of the oldest and most charismatic building in the city of Porto.
