By all means cross the Douro by walking the Luis. It is a beautifully built bridge and photo ops abound. Crossing also gets you to the port lodges where you can, for a fee, taste any amount of port wines. When planning your trip to the lodges side of the Douro make sure you plan to eat lunch when everyone... More

This is an experience in itself. Crossing over to the Jardim de Morro will also offer you great views of the historical part (old Porto) of the city. The views down and across to farther parts of the river Douro are great.

Porto is a very calm city, if you compare to big metropols. Ponte Bridge is one of the nicest place here to see on the large river. Architect is same to Eiffel. Enjoy!

This bridge is one of six over the Douro in Porto and was built by a pupil of Gustavo Eiffel. There are two pedestrian levels - a lower one where cars and bikes can also go, and a higher one where trams also run. The high level one is a bit scary if like me you don't like heights, as... More

Simply one of the greatest bridges of the world, concerning type of material, architecture, localization and history. The sight of Oporto is deeply marked by this metallic double tray work of art.

Great bridge connecting two fun towns. We loved walking across it with trains and cars below and above. We stopped in cafes on both sides of the river.

The bridge is awesome to go up and take pictures on. Its height makes it great for getting an ariel view of the city. It's also lit up at night, which is cool.

Like to take pictures - especially at night. For photographers; the best view onto the bridge is form the Mosteiro da Serra do Pilar at night or dawn.

Not much to write about, just look at the picture. It is a very cool bridge. We saw it from all angles throughout the trip (literally). Take the funicular to see it from bottom to top. Take a boat tour to see the from underneath. Take the regional train to see it from the west. Go to Taylor's to see... More
