  • It costs 9 euros round-trip, but perhaps it is good choice to opt only for the ida and since the end of the journey continue walking. The views are worth. Make you a photo that can be purchased for $ 5.

  • It is fast and the price is not too expensive, in just 5 minutes you are in the upper area of Oporto from the shore.

  • Is a kind of collective cable car that holds about 20 to 50 of people on average. It is used as a means of transportation for local residents of the city from the port linking the Cais da Ribeira off the Battle. Besides being very appreciated by tourists on the beautiful image.

  • An amazing structure - well worth a visit walking across the river to Gaia. Wonderful views and great for seeing both Porto and Gaia as the walk only takes 5 minutes to cross.
  • Great way to see the Harbour and the dos Guindais zone. Shame is the password not being accepted .. Walking.

  • Who sells passwords is a vigilante who is more interested in mobile than on customers. Nobody explains that the funicular takes some time before you start the climb. Interesting and well thought-out structure. A bit expensive € 2.5
