One of the most important places to visit in Porto. Great views and nice mood. I recommend to have a jacket. It's a bit cold in September.

Symbol of Porto, an amazing sight. Possible to walk on the bottom level but the pavement is narrow. Walking across the top level gives you stunning views of Porto and the river Douro. Best way to get to the top is the cable car.

Had difficulty finding how to get to upper level, but well worth it. Slightly disconcerting when trams come by but plenty of space. Views are excellent. Took cable car down into Gaia and visited a port cellar.

This is the best place to wander around in Porto. Both the top and bottom pedestrian paths provide views down the Douro River and over the entire city. Easily walkable. Use the paths to go from the main city to the Gaia side for Port...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

Yep you can walk on both levels but the top level is much better. My partner is also put off by heights and she stayed away from the edge and still saw the views. The trams run along the top level in both direction so you... More
