We had the chance to admire the bridge from the shore and walking it. We both agreed that the view was nicer from the shore if you don't feel like climbing to the top don't worry, you'll still enjoy the view!

Very little more to tell. The only one thing to be sure is to visit by day and by night if you can. Be sure no one with you is afraid of heights.

I studied in Portugal for about 2 year and this place brings me great memories. It is a touristic attraction, but also a place where students get together at night. There are good restaurants and bar nearby and it is also possible to get the 7 bridges cruise.

The birdge itself is worth seeing, but the best part is crossing it from Porto to Gaia. You have a lower and a higher path. Of course the higher one is the one you want to do so you can catch that outstanding view.

It's one of the most important tourist attraction in Oporto. On this spot, you have a gorgeous view of the city and if you cross over, you can visit the wonderful port wine cellars to taste a perfect glass of port wine, while enjoy the view of the city.

We went on both the upper and lower levels of this bridge and the views are stunning. Watch out for trains on the top level and traffic and bridge jumpers on the lower level.

Got up at 5:30AM to photograph it until 9:30AM. Also photographed it at dusk and at night. A great structure.

This bridge doesn't let down as an attraction. Both the architecture and the views (from the bottom and from the top) are breathtaking
