No picture in the word quite gives you the idea what to expect. This bridge is massive and extremely tall! Impression not worse than of its Parisian sister. I was astonished! For me it should be among top 10 to see in Europe! And I saw most famous places.

This is one impressive bridge! It feels really high when you walk across it. On the top, a tram runs down the middle with a path either side and on the bottom the cars can pass. You get great views from the top of bridge. The area around here is lovely too! My favourite part of Porto!

one of the finest such constructs allowing the objective as well as the aesthetic to function - the monastery lit in blue green at night almost surreal - the height of the upper deck vertiginous - a good preparation for the Sydney Bridge though the latter does not stand to the functional equivalent

I love Porto, the ponte is the signature of the city. You will see it since is in the center of the town!! The atmosphere around it helps you enjoy it even more, the people of Porto are very welcoming and everyone seems to be more relaxed.

It is great architecture and there are nice spots around from which one can take the complete picture of the bridge. It looks marvelous! The best thing is the metro which runs on top of the bridge. Taking a ride and getting down at a station on top of the bridge is a must do. From there one can see... More

It was quite crowded but a must. Be it for the cliché picture with the bridge, for its history, or for the great food and movement in this area. Live music make it a great spot to hang out.

Everyone likes a good view, and the ponte does not disappoint. It is situated in an ideal position overlooking the iconic houses in Porto's Ribeira and Gaia's caves. The convenient location means that it does not take much for you to walk across the ponte, either for the express purpose of getting between Gaia and Porto or just for the... More
