Portugal & Amsterdam - March 2018

Virtuoso Symposium Travel Conference March 2018 - Portugal & Amsterdam
By:  Wendy and Cathy Davis - Owner & Travel Advisor

We started off our trip in Portugal in the Douro Valley, then we headed to Porto, drove south along the coast to Nazare (the biggest waves in the world each fall), and ended in Lisbon.  We saw a lot of hotels and really enjoyed this stunning country.  So much to see and experience.  Not to mention the amazing food and wine.  All in all Portugal is an incredible country.
