Great bridge. If you're going to cross it once, go on the upper bit. The lower bit, whilst pretty nice in itself, just doesn't compare.

This is the way to introduce yourself to the multi-level city of Porto. Crossing at the high level is a wonderful experience with only the occasional tram / metro to look out for. You can get great views and photographs from both sides. Crossing the lower level is somewhat trickier with narrow pavements and a lot of buses and cars. It is a lot less relaxing and some people don't seem to hesitate in forcing their way through

We walked from the city center to visit the port merchants in Vilha Nova. A bit hot in September but manageable.Perfect spot for pictures of both sides. Vertigo sufferers may not want to look over the railings. You'll find the cable cars boarding nearby if needed.

Our most memorable experience was the history of port and the various producers and outlets to visit. Thee is also a very real sense of history as you look down upon both shore lines. As a Catholic, I sensed emidiatly that our history teaching in our Canadian schools falls short on giving a true sense of our ancestors. I will be doing a lot more reading on where we came from.

This is a spot that you must cross by foot and enjoy scenery on both sides of the river. Take lots of pictures!
