Ribeira do Porto reviews
Good to wander around and take in a drink from one of the bars overlooking the river. We went for Sao Joao festival in June 23 which was frighteningly busy on the night and was quite intimidating.

The Douro Valley River Cruise was an outstanding excursion! It was a seven-hour boat ride up the River viewing the many bridges and passing through locks, which included Europe's tallest river lock and concluded with a tour/tasting at a local port wine producer's facility, which was followed by the 90 minute air-conditioned bus ride back to Porto. HIGHLY RECOMMEND
It is a nice area for a walk or for a run (although, there are many tourists, even in the spring time). The sunsets here are amazing and it really has this great vibe going on with the street musicians, local restaurants and of course, the view to the world famous Luis I bridge.
