Douro - which direction to drive along Valley?

Jump to last reply

Hello - my husband and I will be traveling to the Douro Valley region this spring and would like to drive along the scenic N-222 to see the vineyards and perhaps stop at a couple. We will likely go as far as the section between Pinhao and Regua which we understand is a must see. However, in the interest of getting back to Porto the same day, we will likely take the highway A4 in one direction. I am trying to understand if it would be better to drive east along the N-222 for the scenery on the way out there, and come back along the A4, or do it in reverse and drive out there on the A4 and return on the N-222? Does it make a big difference in terms of the views? I think the more scenic areas are once you get out towards PInhao so perhaps it does not matter?

thanks in advance!!
