Linking the heritage part of Porto city with the historic port lodges of Vila Nova da Gaia. Walk across the lower level or ride across the top level on the tram. Stop To watch the young men tomb stoning off the lower level of the bridge then pay them for the privilege! Even better take a boat ride underneath the... More

The only other bridge that I can say is up there is the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It is quite impressive and really amazing that you can walk over it on a lower or higher level as well. Stunning views and connects the Gaia side with the Ribeira.

One of the most beautiful bridges of the World. It is worth visiting and crossing from Porto to Vila Nova de Gaia, so that you can enjoy the beautiful view of Ribeira do Porto.

This bridge over the River Douro was built by Gustave Eiffel, the same guy who built the Eiffel Tower in Paris. It is a must visit. Walk on the top tier of this double tiered bridge for amazing views of both sides of the river. Very windy up there and be careful of the trains that also run across. There... More

Bridge in two levels. Walk over in one level and return on the other. Amazing view and nice area on both sides.

This is an exciting walk across a very high bridge over the river. Exciting because it is high, yes, but also because trains are zipping past just three feet from where you are walking. Good photo opportunity.

Spectacular views particularly from the top which leads to the cable cars. Slightly worrying in that small children jump off into the river for a euro a time!

Your choices between walking the top or the bottom are important ones as they go and come to/from different places. It is an amazing bridge within a bridge
