You can walk on the top of the bridge or the 2nd level bridge. The trams are just next to you. Remember to take pic if you are a tram fans. You can enjoy both sides of Porto and the Douro River on the bridge. The bridge itself is a masterpiece also. I'd recommend the night view which is fascinating.... More

This bridge dominates the River Douro and is probably the most pleasing to the eye of the six bridges in Porto.

Amazing structure, trams and pedestrians along the top and cars and pedestrians along the bottom. On busy days be prepared for lots of selfie sticks as people take pics of the sensational views of Porto and the Douro from the bridge!

it's an absolutely easy walk up! (i didn't need my nikes I was keen to get back on!) it was a great (really incredible) view of the city on either side at sunset. super super safe (you're harnessed in!) and doesn't take more than 10 minutes to get up the bridge. wonderful sunset views and great community-drive activity that invests...

Great place to take photos of Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia. Suited on the river, there's tons of cafes and restaurants that overlook this bridge, making for an extremely pleasant dining experience.

This bridge is fascinating and its pure hight ist breathtaking alone. The view over the old parts of the city of Porto on both sides is amazing. If you have fear of heights like I have be aware that you come walking onto this bridge at ground level and then when you enter the bridge the shores of the river... More

You can enjoy it, from the top, from the bottom and from both sides. While on-top, be careful of the "tram"
