    This magnificence bridge is part of the tradition and a must to be able to cross it both from above as well as from below. It joins both municipalities of Porto and Gaia

    For many this is the key attraction in Porto and it is a very popular area with lots of restaurants crammed on the water front and consequently packed with tourists.

    Walk a few streets up the hill away from the waterfront and you'll be rewarded with much narrower, older, traditional streets.

    The vineyards lining the banks of the Douro River are amazing to see. Take the drive east from Porto to Pinhao to see the terraces slopes of the river filled with grapevines.

    Very pleasantly surprised by the breadth of interest from this tour, particularly . The depiction of the history of the club and its place in the Community in the brilliantly designed and atmospheric Museum was genuinely fascinating for all of us (ages 22 to 62) ..... so much so we nearly missed the start of the Stadium walk-round.
    Even if you've only got a passing interest in football this visit's well worth it !!
    Dead easy to get there on the metro too .... straight opposite the station exit.

    Thank you so much for this great experience. Following the advice of the staff, we took a reservation for the last hour and climbed at 20:30. The view with the last rays of sun was amazing. The staff was extremely friendly and my boyfriend and I had a wonderful time.
    Thank you Margarita !

    Our hotel was just around the corner from this food court, so we popped in regularly for dinner, snacks, coffee & drinks.

    All the vendors were friendly & helpful.

    Very busy place.

    Toilets on site.

    Recommended.

    Excellent view of the whole city from the up. Going to the tower you are allowed to see some other things and get to know the history of the Clerigos church and other monuments. If you are really lazy it's not necessery for you to go there but anyway I thinks it's worth it.

    Imposing in both its position and its structure the cathedral can be seen from all over Oporto.It is not your average Catholic cathedral, being much more autere in design and decoration but as we have said about other places none the worse for that. Internal decoration again is subdued but for us there was a real sense of devotion and piety lacking in some of the more garish manifestations of the genre. With gentle orgam music contrasting with the busker saxophist outside who seemed only to know Griegs "Morning" this was quite a moving experience.

    The metro is a very good way to get around Porto. The only problem is the complexity of the ticket buying machines. Top tip: at the airport when you buy your ticket for the first time, ask one of the staff to show you how to use the ticket machine - and video the process with your phone for future reference! Also, buy 5 trips or more at a time on the card that the machine will give you, so you don’t have to join the queues of tourists trying to figure out how to buy their tickets. To go to the coast I recommend one of the hop on hop off buses, there are yellow, red and blue companies in competition with each other.

    The 2 churches are separated by a very narrow house, inhabited until the 1980's.

    The house was built so that the 2 churches would not share a common wall & to prevent any relations between the nuns of Igreja dos Carmelitas & the monks of Igreja do Carmo.

    You can visit the 2 churches, catacombs, the narrow house etc.

    Of note is the portal behind the statue of Christ so you could kiss his foot.

    Admission €3.50 pp.

    You go way out Rua Boavista toward the ocean and you end up at the big city park which is a good place to get away from it all. The park ends at the beach and the ocean.

    This will surely be on your walkabout in Porto because you will want to spend some time along the pretty river. Lots of fun here with cafes and restaurants and some good buskers with music. Some not so good too.

    The Metro construction did indeed damage the perspective of this city center square, but it is grand with the City Hall at one end and a big statue in the middle. Major streets pass through it. Lots of big banks around and some big cafes. Very historic.
