Amazing! Beautiful both close to it or from a distance. Built by Gustave Eiffel's best student. Very nice to view it from a boat. One of the highlights

The most impressive part of the bridge is sitting underneath to watch the Porto kids jump off of it!!! You also see the teenagers playing soccer and dancing with local music. You are part of the Porto way of life for a couple of minutes. Enjoy it!

An absolutely flat railway bridge from late 1800s that has been adapted to allow people to walk along the tracks safely and includes a second bridge on a lower level. Nice and high bridge over the Mondego river with staggeringly beautiful views.

Walking across Ponte de Luis and reached the cellars on the other side of the bank. Very nice on either side of the river; I took bus #11 (in front of Sanderman) back to the city (walk up 5 mins you arrived S Bento Train Station).

Oporto is in mainstream, full of tourists from all over the world, and this bridge is a beautiful piece of art. You can cross it walking or in a car/bus to got to Cais de Gaia. The both sides of Douro river are amazing to film especially in the sunny afternoon or by night. 10 stars.

The Douro is a beautiful part of Portugal and the bridge links the city of Porto to Cais de Gaia where all the port cellars are. You can walk across at both the upper level which carries the metro or lower lever which carries cars. The views of the river are spectacular.

Recommend walking across the bridge for the great views. Suggest travelling up the funicular , then walking across the bridge and then taking the cable car down the other side.
