  • The bridge is fine if you like bridges but even better is to stroll a little way West towards the sea and decide which little restaurant you sit outside and what fish caught that morning is to be barbecued for lunch
  • An iconic bridge. At the time it was built (1963), it had the biggest suspended concrete arch of any bridge in the world. Still a great living feat of engineering. Cool guided visits/tours from within the bridge(which has built-in elevators).
  • Grande vista Foz e Ribeira
  • Amazing bridge... Amazing views... day and night. One of the Oporto must see. Might be tricky to find the way in if you're walking from Gaia side.
  • Take a climb up the arc to have a great view of Porto.

Where to stay in Porto

Portugal's second city offers a healthy variety and quantity of accessible accommodations. The historical city center on the northern bank of the River Douro teems with hotel options, ranging from budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses, which often have shared rooms, to upscale, luxury hotels housed in larger buildings and packed with amenities. All of these options place you conveniently close to the town's main sights, including churches, historical squares, and more. On top of that, many hotels on the northern bank boast good views from their hilltop vantage points. If you want to save big on cost, it's worth considering a more low-key hostel or small hotel on the less-popular southern bank.
