We walked over this bridge and the views were spectacular, we also went over by metro which was also a great way of getting to Gaia. We took lots of photos here and spent time walking back and forth. A must do

Just enjoy the beautiful view. We went there with a bottle of wine to see sunset at warm evening. Must-see.

Great city, we did work party here and it was a great weekend break. The city is smallish to walk around and has some great food places.

Definitely a decent bridge. Full marks for engineering (it didn't fall over while we were there) and functionality (it allowed us to cross from one side of the river to the other). It also offers nice views of the Douro and the Port houses.

It's just a bridge and you will need to cross it to get to the other side (appreciate that is stating the obvious) and there are two levels - the highest level provides great views up and down the river and is on the street up from the train station.

Walk from Porto to the Port houses, and back across this scenic crossing of the Douro. The trains and walkway on the bridge top, with cars and walkway on the lower crossing at the riverfront. Fascinating construction and history.

It is nice to cross the bridge to see Porto from the other side, especially for seing the sunset. It's definitely a must-see of Porto

Given my dislike of all things " heights ", I tend not to take much interest in bridges, but this one is that bit special. It is located in the heart of the main tourist area bordering the river - the Ribeira and links direct to Villa Nova de Gaia [ or just plain Gaia to the locals] on the... More
