Ponte Dom Luis provides a stunning view of Porto. What a great idea to make the upper deck available to pedestrians and trams only. No noisy cars or smelly exhaust to deal with. Make sure you visit at night and daytime for the panoramic view...More

The bridge itself is an architectural landmark o be certain, but best part is the views from the deck on it's top. Day or night. In the morning you can watch the fog roll in and out over the Duoro river, midday you can see...More

I don't know why but this metal monstrosity is beautiful and factors in many of my Porto photos! Additionally, it is nice to traverse! (And take photos on!)

When entering Porto, we crossed over the bridge in our car and were struck by its appearance. We later in the trip walked back across the upper level and the views were tremendous

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
