The main attraction and must see place to visit and walk across. When visiting Porto. The views are magnificent.

This is a nice bridge, great architecture. We crossed the bridge in the upper level, took the cable car to the riverside way (very nice) and crossed the bridge again at the lower level. I recommend!

We would suggest you get the cable car to the top platform of the bridge and walk across the top for the best views.

A fantastic feat of engineering . A definitive must see, both by walking across it and also by seeing it from the river cruise boats.

The climb tour is on a different bridge. Not sure how long it would take but as you have guides and safety ropes etc...I would imagine 2 hours plus...
