- We walked across both the lower part and upper part of this bridge during our two days in Porto, and I recommend you do the same. The lower part is not as scenic of course, but takes you to the section with all the port wineries, which has a great view of the city. The upper section of the bridge has a fantastic view of the river and an even better view of the city once you make it to the other side. The bridge itself is breathtaking.Written November 24, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- This was the train station closest to our hotel, and the one we arrived at when we took the train to Porto. It seems to always be crowded, so its hard to get good photos during the day. The train station is beautiful though, and worth a quick stop while in Porto.Written November 25, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The Douro River wine tasting tour with Living Tours exceeded our expectations. The tour was very well organized. The views, the tastings and the river cruise were amazing. The lunch was very good. Thanks to our expert driver Lucas, we felt safe and comfortable during the ride on winding roads despite some drizzle and fog. And our excellent guide Jose Pereira, who was very knowledgeable, friendly and professional, made this day the highlight of our trip to Porto. We highly recommend this tour with Living Tours.Written November 21, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Lovely area, Porto is a real gem, buzzling with music and food and of course Port wine, a real discovery, especially this area where it all comes together.Written October 28, 2023
- The views from the top were beautiful! It was very crowded and made it a little difficult to get around but it was worth it. When you pay to climb the tower you also get to view the top parts of the church. There is a pipe organ concert every day at noon and if you enter the tower at that time you can watch the organist close up.Written November 17, 2023
- Lovely cathedral with views of the city. Beautiful tilework, a very nice visit and a chance to see the city from the top of the tower with a climb that was easy enough for a variety of ages.Written October 24, 2023
- Must see!
The best tour i had in Porto. Stunning building, beatiful interior. I only wait 10 minute for an english tour which was amazing. I personally would like to have a shorter but guided trip. I believe all the trips around 30-35 minutes. Our guide was Érica she was cheerful, explanied everthing one by one. She took the trip to the next level for me. I am hoping she will be first female major in the future!! I am very grateful that i had a chance to have this experience.

- When we walked into this church my boyfriend and I both said “wow!”. This is probably the most ornamental church I have seen. The admission fee is high (€7,50, US$8,20). I was disappointed when we saw “no photo” signs everywhere. However, everyone seemed to be taking photos, even with employees in the church walking around keeping an eye on the visitors. So, I took photos too. I have been in many places where photos have not been allowed for good reasons, but here I feel like it is a cash grab, on top of the 7,50 admission fee. I wish this church would change their policies and allow photos to be taken. The rule seems rather unenforced and inconsistent.Written November 25, 2023
- It ended up raining, so we were really glad to be seated under the overhang. Game was amazing and they gave out noisemakers and flags to the fans.Written October 14, 2023
- No lines, no wait, and no tickets required. The hardest part of checking out the Chapel of Souls is getting up the hill(s) to see it. Try to come on a clear day as the best part is the outside of this tile lined church. You can quickly take a self-guided tour of the interior as well (again, no ticket required). Unique enough that I'd say its worth at least a fly-by!Written September 27, 2023
- An amazing place to visit when in Porto. The interior of the church is beautiful. Be sure to engage with a guide there. We learned so much about the long history of the church and the story and meaning of the many statues and symbols. We could tell the guide was passionate about this historic building. A small entrance fee is charged but worth it to spend some time in this gorgeous place.Written November 1, 2023
- Great place to eat! Lot's of choices, and friendly prices! Although it was really crowded it was easy to get a seat!Written November 23, 2023
- Loved the classical music performance we went to (Mozart and Wagner). The concert hall is well worth experiencing. Booking online worked well. We thought 9.30pm was a late start, but it is close to the Metro, so late finish wasn't an issue for getting back to the centre. We were disappointed the restaurant isn't operating, but the cafe is open.Written April 7, 2023
- We decided to just visit the park and not the museum, so I can't comment on the indoor displays, but we did enjoy the gardens. They are large, and undulating, but much is in the shade which was great for a very hot day. There is a rather charming grotto built around a pond with a huge number of frogs in it, some croaking noisily. The farm was peaceful and we enjoyed spotting egrets there. Some of the gardens are rather neglected, but there are signs to say that they are being rejuvenated - it must be a difficult job on very dry soil. There were some excellent information boards which gave the history of the place and were worth reading. We were disappointed that the tea garden was closed, as we were unsure that we could access the restaurant - there was nothing at the entrance or on the website that we could see to explain this. Ticketing could be far better explained - it's not clear what you are getting for your money, although to be fair I heard the counter assistants trying to help. Unfortunately that makes for longer queues than are necessary.
Be aware that there are major roadworks going on in the area to improve the transport system - it will be good when they are finished, but we had decided to walk up from the Metro and it made the walk dusty and tedious.Written November 1, 2023
- The Rua Santa Catarina is a pedestrian street going through the center of Porto for 1500 meters. At one end is the Batalha Square and it continues in front of the Chapel of Souls to continue to the famous Majestic Café and beyond.
You will find all the usual brands you can find in any city in Europe now; but you can also take a peek view down the side streets with small vintage shops or survivors of another age like the local butcher or bakery.
Or you can take a look upwards and admire the decorated facades of the buildings. It makes for a nice stroll when the weather is fine!Written November 16, 2023
