Cross the bridge through the lower tray, get upstairs via the "Teleferico de Gaia" (gaiacablecar.com) or via "Funicular dos Guindais" (metrodoporto.pt) and cross again via the upper tray. Stop at the middle of the upper tray and fill the bridge vibration, a must.
This is not only one for the mechanical engineers between us, but as a mechanical engineer, this is a must see in Porto. Great metal construction offering a multi level transport on top deck and ground floor for trans and cars. On the ground level...More
It's old, its spectacular. Not desigened or built by Gustavo Eifel as some people believe but by one of his most talented pupils. It can be nicely viewed form the waterfront bu we find its more spectacular from the River Douro. There are a good...More
Not to be missed when in Porto. Take a stroll across the top level for great photo shots. And then take the venicular to the top of the nearby hill and with a small walk you can see inside the railway station.

I would not worry about it! The bridge is quite wide so if you get nervous, you can walk in the middle of the track and not be forced to look down. I have some height issues but no worries for me here. Give it a try. You have to walk on the upper path but again, no big worries. The tram/train goes down the middle of the road so must be careful when walking that no train is coming. Not sure where to catch it but again, think it is more of a local tram than a train. Good luck! Drink LOTS of port while there...try the "green wine" "young wine" really good!
