We covered all of these historic landmarks by simply taking a day to walk at our Leisure stopping, taking pictures at our leisure so if some of them seem repetitive is because we seen them all in a day or two. I would highly recommend...More

Whilst this is a busy, bustling area spend 3EU. and take the river taxi across to Gaia where restaurants and bars are equally as good but are also less crowded and cheaper. additionally the views are better looking back to the Porto side.

Appalling quality bars & cafes spoil the huge potential of this area. Serious rethink needed if the waterfront is going to offer anything to appeal to mid- to high-end visitors. Head across the river is my advice!

Expensive riverside bar serving poor food very slowly. It was very bust but the service was so slow. The food was unmemorable to say the least.

Stroll along the promenade and enjoy the river views, life on the river, plenty of places to choose from to sit down and have a drink or a meal. Very crowded area especially at lunch time but central to life in Porto.

Heart of Porto. On the river with a maze of alleyways and lots of cafes, restaurants and bars. In the daytime a small market too. Very lively day and night.

This truly is the heart of the old city of Porto. It's a great place to walk with it's lovely views of the river, bridges, former port transport boats and of course the people. Plenty of restaurants, colourful houses and market stalls line the river...More

I don't think there's a market in the Zona Ribeirinha. But the Mercado do Bolhão is worth a visit though.
