This is the bridge you will find on almost all postcards from Oporto. The lower deck connects Oporto with Vila Nova de Gaia (with all important wine cellars) and the upper deck leads to Jardim do Morro or further to Corte Ingles shopping center. Either way, it's a must. Buses No. 900, 901 and 906 will take you to the... More

Great bridge, loved the fact that you can walk across the lower section to Gaia, to visit the Port Wine Houses. Then catch the cable car to the monestry for amazing views. Before walking back across the top section enjoying panoramic views of Porto and the Douro River.

I am happy that I visited but it is not a "must-see" when one visits the city.The bridge connects Porto with Vila Nova de Gaia .

We walked along here on our way to visit the port cellars. It is a short walk and there are great views of the city. Worth visiting.

It dominates the city and gives a very dramatic back drop to the city.. Whether you walk over or under it - it's a spectacular sight and a must see !

Great views and easy walk across to the other bank of the Douro where most of the port makers have their "caves", shops and mini-tours. Two levels - the lower for vehicles and pedestrians, and the much higher top level for the Metro ("underground"!) and for pedestrians. No charge.

A must do while you're in the area. A great place to get an overview of both side of the city. We watched a few kids jump off the lower part into the water to earn a few euros from other tourist.

We walked over it several times, first from Gaia to Ribeira and then several days later back. Fortunately for me the walk wasn't TOO long. Also we saw the two portals of a previous suspension bridge on the Ribeira side.

You can walk across the bridge or take a metro. The view on the bridge is the best. It takes only 15 minutes to walk across and the photos taking from the other sides are excellent.

Ponte de D. Luis is a very interesting bridge with a interesting architecture surrounded by water and the city from both sides, is pretty nite to see it at night time do to all the lights around it which gives you a really nice panoramic view of Porto at the North of Portugal.
