4.8/5 based on 10,000+ reviews on the web
Traverse the iconic Ponte de D. Luis along its pedestrian pathway for beautiful views of Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia. When it was completed in 1886, this 172 m (564 ft) bridge was the longest of its kind in the world. Now the two-hinged, double-deck, arched steel bridge is beloved for the spectacular vantage points it offers. The bridge is comprised of a lower section for cars and an upper section for a light rail and pedestrians. If you walk across the bridge, you can take photos from the high above the Douro River. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Ponte de D. Luis and many more Porto attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Porto trip builder.
