Das ist das Herzstück von Porto. Porto's riverside quarter, known as the Ribeira, is one of the city's oldest neighbourhoods and certainly one of its highlights. The waterfront (Cais da Ribeira) is long strip of cafes, restaurants and shops overlooking the river and the Port...More

This is mainly a photo opportunity, and I wouldn't recommend any of the restaurants on the square. If you want to avoid the satellite dishes on your picture of the amazing colours on the tiled buildings, try taking your picture from up-hill, looking down to...More

I guess this is a "must-do" place for Porto - it does have a lovely view of Gaia, and of the 2 nearby bridges (Ponte Luiz, Ponte Infantile). Lots of people around, buskers, restaurants, so great place to sit and people watch, have a drink,...More

Next visit to Porto and still the same impressions: it's one of the most beautiful places in Europe. Ribeira is the essence of the city. Old houses, river Douro, boats, lots of people (even if the weather is bad) and great views on Vila Nova...More

Atmospheric place. Loads of bars and restaurants. Try and do your research because there are some really good restaurants mixed with not so good.

This square is fabulous for a drink near the river Douro, for a walk or for a good photo with the D. Luís I Bridge :)

Very touristic place, nothing so special. Has nice vibes though through the river but that's all. Can be built up traffic. Some poor accomodations there and some good.

A taxi to the airport cost us a fixed price of €25 which is pretty cheap. Relying on public transport when catching a flight is always a bit risky. Our concierge booked the taxi for us.
