Cais Da Ribeira
A little chaotic and great fun to explore, Porto’s riverside area is a very picturesque piazza where tourists and locals mingle. There are bars and restaurants around every corner, and these line the riverside walk too. You’ll have a perfect shot of the iconic Luís I Bridge from here, and if you duck through the arcades there’s a maze of steep streets between pastel-painted houses in varying states of repair. The Cais da Ribeira has been spruced up a little in the last few years and information boards have been installed to tell you about this district’s characters and businesses when it was Porto’s hive of commerce.
