view Porto

Europe

looking onto Porto and Gaia

Porto and Gaia (the city on the other side of the river Douro) have many hills and structures from which one can snag a passable view. The Porto Clock Tower is one of them, the area around the cathedral another. The bridge designed by Eiffel (the Eiffel Tower guy) offers a view of Porto and Gaia both. In Gaia, the round monastery on a prominent hill offers a high-up view.

Porto

at night

A night stroll in Porto is a must for any visit. The best view is the well-lit city as seen from the double-decker bridge. Or take your McDonald’s meal to the next level like a certain young man we saw: sticking out his legs from between the railings and dangling them high above the black water, enjoying his fries with the spectacular view of the twin cities. A magnified candle-light dinner, so to speak.
