Wander arround downtown Porto and drift south towards the bridge. Lots of interesting things to see on the way and the view from the bridge is great.

Early in the morning the Bridge is completely free from tourists and almost none of locals pass over it - thus, you could patiently admire any angle and detail of it and make any photo of Porto you wish without disturbances and interruptions :). It...More

Magnificent bride which can be viewed almost anywhere on the shore or on the water. We took the boat tour and saw the Douro River and all the bridges and the City.

We drove to the bridge with the car! Parked the car for 4 hours in a parking lot nearby. Crossing the bridge by foot, lower level, visited the city and returned through the upper level 60 meters high. The bridge is impressive we enjoyed it...More

I did not actually walk over it, as we took a water taxi across the river. However, we took the metro back at sunset, and the view is phenomenal! Also there is a park beside the metro station that is the best place to watch...More

Walking across the bridge at both levels is a must for views and photos of Porto and Ghia. Visit a winery like Churchill. Have some wine and watch the divers jump off the bridge...offer the long-haired beach blonde guy E20 for a great memory photo.

The bridge is insanely horrifying and up extremely high with a tiny railing that even a small baby could fall over. It is a gorgeous piece of architecture but has clearly been used in dozens of gangland style murders, pushing unsuspecting people over the railing...More

This bridge is the centre point of the Duoro river and has two levels you can walk over making it great for photo opportunities . It is especially nice at dusk when it is lit up.

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
