We didn't cross the bridge, but had a hotel with a perfect view. The area surrounding is a very relaxing one.

Beautiful bridge, can be seen from miles around - quite a landmark. The bridge starts in the Oriente area of Lisbon, which is a five minute journey on the train from the Alfama district. In Oriente you will find conference centres, restaurants, and modern shopping.

Saw and took pics from the train into Lisbon. Get off at Alcantara and walk towards the sea. Makes the strangest noise from the cars and there is a train underneath.Really a beautiful bridge like the one in San Fransisco just smaller.
