  • Another great metallic bridge over Douro...maybe a bit far to go by foot. It was a train bridge now decommissioned but maintained due to its beaty

  • Can't Miss Maria Pia. I went there by train many times. The passage above the Douro was slow... we don't see the bridge when it was above the water, you could just hear him sing by vibration effect... I remember... it is already far away.

Where to stay in Vila Nova de Gaia

Located just across the river from Porto's Old Town, Vila Nova de Gaia boasts a distinctive identity of its own.You can take advantage of the area's trendy riverfront district and its world-famous Port wine cellars by staying in one of the neighborhoods just south of the bridges to Old Town Porto. This puts you within easy walking distance of the wine cellars, while leaving you in close proximity to historical sites across the river by foot, bus, or taxi. Farther from the river are several international chain hotels offering comfortable rooms with high standards of cleanliness. You'll also find locally run inns and bed and breakfasts in the heart of the city's more residential neighborhoods of Cravelos and Mafamude.
