Cruise the River Duoro that divides Oporto from Vila Nova de Gaia, passing under the most picturesque of the six bridges that span the meandering waterway. After boarding the boat near the sleek Freixo Bridge, you will cruise west at a leisurely pace that allows you to view the landmarks on both sides of the river. The two cities are wonderfully historical, which will make the modern Infante Bridge look even more dramatic in comparison. The most famous of Oporto’s bridges is the Dom Luis I, a two-tiered structure that an engineer that studied under Gustave Eiffel designed. Because of its distinctive metallic arch, the similarities between it and the Eiffel Tower will be obvious. The bridge, together with the surrounding historical area, are so architecturally significant that UNESCO deemed them a World Heritage site. You will also view the concrete Arrabida Bridge, whose arch was once the world’s longest. The bridge is the closest one to the river’s mouth.
