on the oporto side, at the Ribeiro, you have lively restaurants and vendors and a view of the Pont Luis bridge, the river traffic with classic boats over to the Gaia side with the rounded convent chapel and all the port houses

“Beautiful river view”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

I enjoyed the boat cruise (10 euros/person for 45-50 mins) along the river. Boats leaving from GAIA side seemed less crowded. You can also get a couple of free port wine tasting tickets from different wineries.

“A walk down from Molhe on the Rocks to Rio Douro”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

To enjoy the scenic sun, beach and sand, to old city of Oporto, the best way is to stroll down from Molhe on the Rocks to Rio Douro, then along Rio Douro, to the old city.
