Wether you take the high road or the low road this is a stunning experience to enjoy. The views are spectacular. Excellent photo opts with all the boats passing by!

Simply amazing. If you are lucky enough to be there with a good weather then you will have fun! Don't forget to cross the bridge and try the different wines on the other side of the Douro river (vila nova de Gaia).

This bridge over the river Duro has so much history and is the iconic sign of Porto. A lovely place to take a stroll and magnificent views, both sides of the bridge. You may even catch the young boys jumping into the water, from the...More

There are two levels to this bridge - a lower road bridge and an upper rail bridge. The more impressive views are on the upper level. Make the effort Especially as the lower level footpath is narrow and the traffic quite heavy. No charge.

Landing in Porto we saw some beautiful bridges across the river. This is the main one. You want to walk it both on the low and on the up level. Low level for the crowds and tourist attractions available on the other side Just don't...More

Bridge linking the Ribeira side of Porto to the Villa Nova de Gaia. 2 levels for pedestrians to be able to cross over, and great views of the Douro river, Port houses etc.

Must visit place to get the perfect picture of Porto. Wineries line up on one lower side of the river(not on the old city side) and you can learn all about how Port is made and do some Port wine tasting. You can walk on...More

Yes, this is the bridge. They jump from the lower deck.

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

Yep you can walk on both levels but the top level is much better. My partner is also put off by heights and she stayed away from the edge and still saw the views. The trams run along the top level in both direction so you... More
