Lots of tourist and prices on average higher for drinks and food compared to some other parts of town but you can find some well priced little gems with good food if you look.

Lively and fun if a bit touristy. Walk the "back" road and take the stairs down from the Cathedral to get a better feel of what the city used to be like.

Our tourist walk in Porto comes normally on his end on the Ribeirinha zone from Porto. This is the moment to have a small or longer moment of rest.

The river sides are both very lively with many restaurants and bars. You can find many options that match your taste and many of them also offer a great view.

We had both lunch and dinner in the area. It is very central to lots of sights in Porto. Great both in daytime and at night.

Locals and tourists alike enjoy the outdoor cafes along the River Douro in one of the oldest sections of Porto. Great for a drink, people watching, or a meal. A must experience when visiting Porto!

Portugal is famous for its tinned sardines. Maybe they got the idea in this district, where taxation dictate narrow, elongated structures. Each unit is < 10 m wide so you see these buildings stacked up in a unique, picturesque profusion.

Ribeira has amazing views over the river Douro and Vila Nova de Gaya, also a lot of souvenir shops and restaurants. It is nice to stroll there in the evening, but I wouldn't recommend eating there as the prices are at least 30 percent higher then a bit further in town.

It was quite 'touristy' down on the river, but to be honest - a really nice place to sit and have a few drinks in the sun.
