  • I fell by chance on the funicular which has been very supportive after walking all day. It is located at the bottom of the bridge Dom Luis and allows to go back to the city in a few seconds. The one-way price is 2.50 euros and allows you to see the river and the city seen from above. Very convenient to not go the streets to walk when you are tired!

  • By far the best way up the hills of porto
  • Good views and you skip to take many steps. Short ride.
  • 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.
  • Best way to get from Ribeira to Battle in little time and without effort. The cost of the ticket is similar to others in similar cities. Good view of Gaia and the ponte d. Luis I. Good service
