This area abuts the river, there are river cruises on offer, restaurants abound and it is a short walk up hill to other streets in the centre of this beautiful friendly town. On offer are all sorts of cafes, bistros, restaurants and bars but do not miss the other side of the river where many of the old port firms... More

A previous review says that Zona Ribeirinha is one of the most popular sites in Porto for tourists. I don't have the tools to confirm that, but it is reasonable. The waterfront area, with its myriad of colorful houses overlooking it from above, the river, the people selling all sorts of knicknacks and the extremely large choice of restaurants that... More

This square presents unmatched views of the Douro and bridges in Oporto. The square has many cafe's and restaurants from which you can while away the time watching the river traffic and the Port lodges located across the river. If you explore other parts of Oporto from here, be prepared to walk uphill... a trek well worth the effort

Located in Porto's historic center, Praça da Ribeira is one of the "must see in city". During the weekends exist lots of things going on like live music, little markets (portuguese hand crafts), lots of bars, live music... And of course the amazing view to the Douro river.

The spot to find the best food, with the perfect view. Plenty of restaurants offering traditional to modern Portuguese food. Price points in the low, middle, high ranges. Great ambiance.

Zona Ribeirinha is one of the most popular sites for tourists, and it is a must see and experienced. There are coffee shops, restaurants and bars all facing the river. You can buy a ticket for a ride on a traditional boat that will take you up the river for the most beautiful views of the city. The architecture of... More

Loved the layed back atmosphere of the area, plenty of places to eat and drink. Strolled alongside the Douro taking in the history of the area, overlooking the port warehouses.
