Episode Summary

This 13-part series offers a fascinating look at international train travel. Not only do we get a close-up look at the type of train used and the accommodations offered, but we are able to observe points of interest and various landscapes along the route until we reach our final destination. This segment covers train travel in Portugal. The journey runs almost entirely along the banks of the River Douro. The Douro valley is famous throughout the world due to the port wine that comes from this region. In earlier times, port boats traveled along the river to the city of Porto. Trains have now taken over this task. Various locomotives, some modern and some very ancient, stop off at small vineyards and magnificent port cellars.moreless
