River front not over appealing and bridge is a bridge, not massive, not particularly nice looking. No doubt it breaks some sort of record for architecture but wouldn't go out of way to see it.

Not far from the center you can walk over this bridge which will take you on the other side of the river. There you will find the station to take you down to the river

Luis gave us a personalized and in-depth tour of Antigua. We visited many of the historic buildings where he explained the history and architecture of each. Also included were explanations of jade and chocolate production. Luis is very passionate about his country and its history...More

You cannot compare Porto to anywhere else as heard as you may try. The bridge itself is unique and serves it's purpose. You can walk on the top platform dodging the metro for an amazing view of Porto or walk across the bottom platform to...More

Great view over Porto. Since 1880’s it’s one of the symbols of the city. Walk the lower bridge to visit the Port wine cellars or cross the upper bridge by ‘metro’ to visit the monastery at Serra do Pilar.

Walked across this bridge to Oporto and it gave some amazing views. decaying roofs, feral cats playing, peoples homes and gardens from a roof top perspective, views of the river and boats/ships. Trams travelling along ferrying people around. Very pleasant walk into the city locks...More

Lovely to see and a great feeling to walk across! I fully recommend the visit. Both sides of the bridge, Ribiera and Gaia, are also quite enchanting!

You can't miss the bridge once you are in the city center. It is worth seeing it by night and by day. Try to walk on the top and avoid the trams.

The views from the bridge are super; you get to see both banks of the river and you also get to take in the history of the bridge and the designing of it. By whatever method you use the visit/trip is well worth it!

The well-known Porto wine, hence the name of the city, exists in white or red and there are several brands that are excellent.

Yes from the lower deck area and if you see them they will come back and ask for money! Beware!

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
