Took metro over to garden on the otherside, lovely well kept area and great views then walked back over bridge for more great views and photo opportunities. Walkways are free flowing with metro tracks so be careful and aware of metro trains.

The walk up the steps to the top tier is well worth it since you are rewarded with a beautiful view of the harbor. You also have the option of riding the funicular up to the top tier for 3 Euros.

Awesome view of downtown Porto. We took the cable car (6€ per adult one way) to get up and walked towards the city center.

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... More

Yep you can walk on both levels but the top level is much better. My partner is also put off by heights and she stayed away from the edge and still saw the views. The trams run along the top level in both direction so you... More
