We enjoyed a cable car ride up to the bridge, got some good photos on the way and certainly lots from the bridge itself. It was very windy walking along the top but well worth it and not so crowded on a Monday morning, Sunday...More
An imposing structure across the river Douro, straddling between Porto and Villa Nova de Gaia, the iron bridge is impressive and offers amazing views of the river and surrounding areas. You can take great pictures from the top level metro track plus from the lower...More
As Porto lies high above the Douro river and the hillsides facing it are steep, building a bridge there is challenging. The Ponte de Dom Luis I, built in 1886, is unique because its graceful metal arch carries two decks. By the time it was...More
Its a very nice place to take wonderful pictures from the bridge, watch some local childer jump from the bridge and do not forget to stay on the bridge during the sunset as the view is breathtaking! Your camera should always be in your hands...More
Built by Eiffel’s compatriot, this structure is not only an attraction on its own but also a great way to see the city on both sides of the river especially at sun set. And ask the locals how to take the lift up at the...More
This is a great bridge. It dates back to the late 19th century. In fact Gustav Eiffel had something to do with it, although he did not end up building it, rather one of his students, I think, built it. Eiffel built another bridge, nearby,...More
The bridges make Porto what it is today but it is not only this one that is worth seeing it is all of them, and best seen from the river boat ride. However, well worth walking over this at all levels the view is superb.
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
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 have to walk on the upper path but again, no big worries. The tram/train goes down the middle of the road so must be careful when walking that no train is coming. Not sure where to catch it but again, think it is more of a local tram than a train. Good luck! Drink LOTS of port while there...try the "green wine" "young wine" really good!
