One of the liveliest and most attractive places to stay in Porto is the riverside Ribeira district, dominated by the iron Dom Luís I bridge and rows of colourful houses. There are plenty of restaurants and bars along the waterfront and in the main square, although this could be a problem for light sleepers.
It’s a great place to simply sit at a café with a glass of port tonic and watch the boats come and go or stroll along the water’s edge.
From São Bento, it’s easy to get to the cathedral and the main shopping streets leading down to the river, such as Rua das Flores, or Avenida dos Aliados, the central avenue that leads up to the City Hall.
