The Ribeira do Porto is one of the city’s main tourist destinations, and renting a scooter is the best way to explore it. With Love-Scooter, your rental motorbike, you can enjoy a fun, economical and much more adventure.
Cais da Ribeira is the postcard of Porto and is the ideal place to take pictures, due to its beauty. It is a lively and busy place that, considered as the heart of the city, stands out for the historical significance that surrounds it – it is worth remembering that it was in the 14th century that this area began to attract a large number of people, due to the maritime and commercial activities of the region. Renting a scooter allows you to easily park and enjoy all the views and attractions of Ribeira.
D. Luís I Bridge
Another must-see tourist spot in Ribeira is the iconic D. Luís I Bridge, a project by Belgian Theóphile Seyrig, who had already worked with Gustave Eiffel. The bridge connects Porto with Vila Nova de Gaia, another city full of interesting attractions, as well as various options of restaurants, bars and cafes, as well as the famous Port wine cellars which are a must-see. By the way, the Port wine is actually made in Vila Nova de Gaia. Renting a scooter is the perfect way to explore both riversides, as it allows you to easily cross the bridge and park near the cellars for a wine tasting.
The cable car
To explore both riversides, it is advisable to cross the bridge walking through the lower sector to Gaia, walk to the cable car on the other side of the river, return by cable car and see the sunset from the top of the bridge, returning to Porto. Another option is to take a boat tour, as there are several available in the city, and thus you can enjoy the incredible views of Ribeira and the D. Luís I Bridge from the Douro River. And don’t forget to try the local cuisine and Port wines, as they are an important part of the region’s culture. Renting a scooter is the best way to explore the Ribeira do Porto in an economic, fun and unforgettable way.
