Yes it is a pretty bridge and it dominates the harbor. But you will see it anywhere along the water. We did not go across it and not sure we missed much.

Saw the bridge from the cable car (well worth it for the view), lovely area to walk along with restaurants, water gardens and even an Irish pub!

The view of the bridge fro Alcochete was great. An amazing feat of engineering. Cressing the bridge was a fun experience... Such a long bridge. Think about 9 miles

The bridge gives you a nive view of Lisbon (South to North) and has a toll of 2,60€. At night you might be passed by illegal speeding racers...and the cops.

near Lisbao Airport. Easy to get out of town. Nice view allover the river. To use if you're going to the south of Portugal. It's only a three hours tour.
