The Presidential Train

The Presidential Train is a Portugal's premier luxury experience, redesigned at each edition, to bring the World's leading culinary talents to the most beautiful corners of the country, aboard the most exquisite  train in Portugal's History.





   Every story has a beginning, and this one starts in the beautiful city of Porto. “EUROPEAN BEST DESTINATION 2017” - a lofty and well deserved title. Porto is rich in History, charismatic and authentic; branded by the Douro River that shapes it so elegantly. The most charming city in the World - many would argue.
   This trip pays homage to the Douro River, and is dedicated to the city of Porto.

   The magnificent portuguese Presidential Train.
   The crown jewel of Portugal’s railway, the "Presidential Train" has hosted Kings, Presidents, Heads of State and Popes for over a century. Built in 1890, it served the court of King D. Luis I as the Portuguese Royal Train, transporting dignitaries like Queen Elizabeth II and Pope Paul VI. Renamed The Presidential Train at the turn of the century, it proudly transported Portugal’s Heads of State until 1970, when it was officially retired.
   In 2010 the emblematic train was magnificently restored to its luxurious standard, maintaining the original furnishing and style that made it iconic, and has since been showcased in the National Railway Museum as the most important peace of our railway history.
   Retrieved from the past, the Presidential Train is moving again.

   All aboard!
