Ribeira District Tours

Set on the banks of the River Douro, the Ribeira District is Porto’s oldest quarter. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the district’s maze of alleyways and pastel-colored houses rises up on a hill above the bay. The Ribeira’s modern waterfront—lined with restaurants, bars, and cafés—is a popular leisure hub and nightlife destination. 

The Basics
Porto’s Ribeira District is best explored on foot. Visitors can stroll down Cais da Ribeira, the district’s main street, toward Ribeira Square (Praca da Ribeira), a picturesque plaza dominated by two large fountains. Explore on a walking tour with a local guide to learn about the neighborhood’s history and visit popular landmarks such as Ponte de Dom Luis bridge and Elevador da Ribeira. For a more intimate experience, opt for a small-group or private tour. Visit on a full-day tour of Porto to see the Ribeira District and other city highlights such as Arrabida bridge and the Porto Se Cathedral. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Ribeira District is a must-see for first time visitors to Porto.
  • Wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking over uneven surfaces.
  • Come hungry; the neighborhood houses some of Porto’s best tascas (traditional restaurants) with spectacular river views.

How to Get There
The Ribeira is located in Porto’s southeast section, roughly 10 minutes by road from the city center. The district is easily accessible on foot or by bus. 

When to Get There
The Ribeira District is lively throughout the day and into the evening. For a special treat, visit at dusk and dine along the Douro River as the port wine cellars of Vila Nova de Gaia begin to light up across the water. Visit in spring or fall for fewer crowds, warm weather, and lower prices. 

Cruising the Douro
Since the Ribeira ranks among Porto’s most photogenic neighborhoods, you’ll definitely want to see it (and snap some pictures) from the water. Short river cruises depart from Ribeira Quay and pass beneath Porto’s six bridges.
