About Porto

We arrived in Porto in afternoon and as we had very little time to explore thousands of places, we went to see the city view and sunset at Serra do Pilar Monastery which is at the other side of old town crossing Ponte Dom Luis I bridge. From this hill you see the breath-taking view of Douro river separating old town and Porto wineries. After sunset, when lights goes on at night, the view of the city will be wallpaper-esque. It is a beautiful place to take a bottle of wine and enjoy the sunset as Douro river gulps the Sun down. Now there are two ways to go back to the old town. One is through the humongous Louis I bridge and second is to walk down the hill and cross the old bridge located below the Louis I. We chose the second option because we could not get enough of that view and wanted to come again on next day. For night we knew Ribeira is the street where we can experience the Porto’s night life. But well the Ribeira street will get lit up mostly on weekends.
