Tourist and Visitors alike will want to visit this beautiful part of Porto. There is a great view from the bridge of the city and the town along the water. Brave souls can even walk across the bridge. Just watch out for the Metro train. Down below are plenty of shops and restaurants for enjoying a leisurely day. You can... More

Definitely take the time to walk across the bridge. There are breathtaking views and it's an easy walk. If the weather is clear definitely take your walk at sunset.

Stunning views of Porto from both sides of the river, especially at night as the city comes alive. Beautiful city.

It's a nice place where you can walk calmly while you enjoy seeing. If you want, you can go on the bridge and you see all the river. It's very beautiful

A definite 'must do' while down on the river front. The walk on the lower level is quite the experience; however, for the best views - do the upper level. Amazing!! There is a great hike up to the upper level if you are on the Porto side of the river front. Some of our best photos came from this... More

Just really fun to walk at Ponte De Dom Luis I from one side to the other and see Porto from a different angle. If can be quite busy but the experience is definitely great!

We walked along the top scary but brilliant views then got the cable car to the port cellars. We then walked back along the bottom.

Prettier at night. Very disappointed with Porto. The bridge was ok and taking the view and culture in was ok but overall not worth the trip up from Lisbon.

The bridge is the centerpiece of the city let's be honest. Be sure to walk across the top and bottom to get unique perspectives from both. Also forget about taking pictures of the bridge from the Port side (North) walk across and get a shot of the bridge with the beautiful multicolored Riverside buildings, it's worth the hike.

What a stunning bridge as you cross over into Cais de Gaia. We walked across the top where the modern day metro crosses and then underneath where the road is. The bridge is especially beautiful at night
