It takes only 3 minutes to cross this beautiful bridge. Allows beautiful photographs of both sides of the river. It is an icon of the city, and was designed by the famous French engineer Gustave Eiffel.

The area around the bridge has many restaurants, shops and bars. You can be on the south side of the river in about a five minute walk. There are many wine cellars, restaurants and vendors here are well.

Ponte Dom Luis provides a stunning view of Porto. What a great idea to make the upper deck available to pedestrians and trams only. No noisy cars or smelly exhaust to deal with. Make sure you visit at night and daytime for the panoramic view...More

The bridge itself is an architectural landmark o be certain, but best part is the views from the deck on it's top. Day or night. In the morning you can watch the fog roll in and out over the Duoro river, midday you can see...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... More
