See Porto from the water.

The small wooden rabelo barges that you’ll see passing by on the Duero are the commonest type of conveyance in the area, used nowadays solely for tourism and recreational purposes, but for centuries they served as the main transportation means for the barrels of famous Porto port wine. Should you feel so inclined as to get on one of these boats , one of the most highly recommended journeys to take is the “Six Bridge Crossing” (el Puente del Infante Don Enrique, the María Pía, the São João, the Freixo, the Arrábida and the emblematic Dom Luiz I bridge).Although you’ll get lots of opportunities to undertake a panoramic guided tour, from which you’ll get to know the most significant monuments of the port city from the water, three such to be recommended as those who schedule them are: www.douroacima.pt,www.rotadouro.pt or www.viadouro-cruzeiros.com. The trip, which normally departs from the Ribeira jetty, won’t last above an hour and will cost you roughly 10 euros.
