Really enjoyed the riverside atmosphere, very touristy but most folks there were tourists I would say. Lots of choice of eateries and bars. The only downside, after climbing one of the steep hills up from this area, we found the taxi driver less than happy to take us to the Intercontinental Hotel as it was just a short fare, even...

I saw this was one of the top 10 places to visit in Porto so we checked it out. There are great views of Porto; cute shops, cafes and boat tours. It was nice just to stroll down and pop in and out of shops and people-watch.

The river area has everything that a site of this type normally has. Many small and slightly touristy cafes / restaurants, a lot of souvenir shops, street sellers etc etc. could be off putting but in reality they add to the atmosphere. By day it is a great place for a bite to eat and a place to take a... More

We were there this August. It was great to have a beer with typical bean or some pastel de bacahlau by the river and enjoyed the sunset.

This old part of Porto is very beautiful, but also very touristy. If you want to get to know the real inside story of this beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site, book a tour with 'The Worst Tours' in Porto. They take you to see things you would never see or know about and give you a really entertaining time while... More

I've been a fan since I was a little girl. Back then, I loved the toys my parents bought for me from the local merchants. Later, in my teens, it was my favorite nightlife spot. The bar scene and the wonderful view kept me coming back every weekend. Now, I enjoy walking by the river, enjoying the view, crossing the... More
