There are so many places to eat and drink here whilst overlooking the river. The day I went there were so many people and it adds to the buz. You can get cheap and not cheap, drinks or ice cream. Go for a walk, or stroll and take in the atmosphere

Walk the narrow streets and enjoy sitting on a terrace along the quays of the Douro. It is typically Porto. Many houses are run down, or shops are empty, but you can feel the vibe. And people are super friendly!

Lovely, just be prepared for steep upward walking! Terrific cafes, bookstores, shops.... Don't miss Livraria Lello, the bookstore that inspired JK Rowling to write the Harry Potter series! Or just sit in a cafe at the river's edge...and watch the world walk by.

No visit to Porto will very complete without a walk across this area. Great food and great views. You can also take a river cruise for about 10 euros.
