Fun in the Douro Valley

My wife and I are planning a third visit to Portugal specifically to spend time in the Douro Valley and are looking for any tips that would help us enjoy the area. Any comments regarding good restaurants in wineries, what area to look for accommodation in and even specific bed and breakfast places, would be helpful. We will probably initially base ourselves in Porto again.

Basically we are looking for any good ideas because people oftentimes have experiences that we would not have usually considered.

Thank you.

In the upper Douro there are guided tours to the pre-historic rock art:

Below is the link to a thread with a lot of information on the Douro valley which I came across while researching the area for a probable trip next year. You may find some ideas for your planning.

Just curious when you are planning your trip? Are you concerned about COVID-19 and travel restrictions? Or last minute cancellations/changes? Not sure when I should start thinking of going to Europe again.

KarenWoo, I will probably have to go to Lisbon on work end March of next year, at which point Iíd like to take a week off to visit Porto and the Duoro valley. Of course itís all totally dependent on how the Covid situation is in Portugal at that time and the travel restrictions in place. I have EU residency, but Iíll be closely monitoring the situation. And of course now almost all bookings have free cancellation and changes, so am not worried about that aspect.
