Lovely weather too walk around and enjoy the cafes, shops, restaurants . I enjoyed sitting and having a drink looking at the Rio Douro. Great pictures from the river cruise we took. I highly recommend the hop on tour with the river cruise for $24.

Probably the best place in Porto to be at. Having lunch or dinner, the riverside offers the best views of Gaia and the bridges. Must visit while in Porto.

walk along this river bank and savour postcard sceneries as well as people watching. We're there one afternoon when the bank was turned into an obstacle motorbike race track with motorbikes climbing stacks of timber/tyres/steps, see-saws touching the sea- one biker slipped and plunges into the sea, he rescued himself but his poor bike went straight to the bottom!), but...

Cais da Rebeira is a pleasant stretch of riverbank on the edge of the Douro River, close to the Luiz bridge. By searching on Tripadvisor we found several genuine Tapas and Wine bars/restaurants serving Portuguese food. These, without exception, needed to be booked in advance, either online or by visiting the restaurant in advance. This extra trouble was well worthwhile... More

A very lively part of town on warm summer evenings. Plenty of restaurants to choose from and often live music.

This area is arguably be of the most dramatic settings in Europe! Yes, it's VERY touristy. Yes, you pay 3x for a meal. But sitting at an outdoor table drinking a cold beverage and watching the world go by is an xperience not to be missed.

Very fun area of Porto to walk, eat and drink. Great views, cheap drink and eats - and lots to choose from. At the end there are street vendors with some very good deals on Linens and other stuff.

Bathed by the River Douro, this margin allows us to glimpse the opposite bank of the river in Gaia City where are the warehouses and cellars of port wine. On the river there are several very beautiful boats called Rabelo boats, once used for transport of huge barrels of port wine.

A local recommended I stroll through this area, as it is the nicest part of Porto, but that it was geared to tourist and not to dine or shop here. After walking through, I believe he gave me great advise.
