I highly recommend going to the less touristy side of the river for the best views/photo spots (and the best wine tasting!) and down to the side closest to all the other tourist attractions if you want to walk along the river and eat at some of the amazing restaurants in the hidden alleyways

I treated myself to a room at the 296 Heritage Apartments, stylish retro furnished rooms and a view out the balcony that did not disappoint. Although most walking around you want to do will be on the north side of the river, you have to cross the bridge to the southside to get views like this! This has got to be up there in one of the most iconic coast lines, along side Positano in Italy and Santorini in Greece.

Have lunch watching one of the biggest rivers in Iberian Peninsula. Among the streets yo can find little "Tascas" with good portuguese traditional food

Festa de São João do Porto has been celebrated in Porto for more than six centuries. Originally, an event reserved solely for the night of 23 June, the festival of the 21st century now lasts longer than six weeks. Many traditions are found in this festival. At neighborhood parties, it is common to see guests jumping traditional bonfires. In the city, revellers roam the streets hitting each other on the head with plastic hammers. In the window sills, potted basil plants are set out with traditional verses from Portuguese literature. Perhaps the pinnacle of festival season is on the night of 23 June. At midnight, boats crowd the Douro River, and crowds the north and south banks to watch a spectacular fireworks display.

Put on your walking shoes and explore the curves and hills of Porto’s cutest neighborhood, Riberia. Getting lost in Riberia was definitely one of my favorite things to do during my 3 days in Porto!
