“Lively and fun”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Lively and fun if a bit touristy. Walk the "back" road and take the stairs down from the Cathedral to get a better feel of what the city used to be like.

“Tourist walk Porto part seven.”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Our tourist walk in Porto comes normally on his end on the Ribeirinha zone from Porto.
This is the moment to have a small or longer moment of rest.
Her you can get tickets for a boat tour on the river Douro, 10 € por person and they show you on board of a typical riverboat, the six bridges crossing the Douro river, it takes about 50 minutes of your time.
You also can have a seat on the several terraces to enjoy e nice meal, a drink or an ice.
All this before you cross the Ponte Don Luis I, in order to get to visit some of the several Port Wine cellars, on the other border of the river, you have to know that all the Port Wine cellars are located on that border and this means in "Vila Nova De Gaia.

Take your time and do not hurry-up, just enjoy.

See you on an other review.

“Lively”

The river sides are both very lively with many restaurants and bars. You can find many options that match your taste and many of them also offer a great view.

We had both lunch and dinner in the area. It is very central to lots of sights in Porto. Great both in daytime and at night.

“Plenty of restaurants, lots of shops, very picturesque”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Locals and tourists alike enjoy the outdoor cafes along the River Douro in one of the oldest sections of Porto. Great for a drink, people watching, or a meal. A must experience when visiting Porto!
