Teleferico de Gaia, Vila Nova de Gaia

(3.1/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
Take a ride on Teleferico de Gaia, a cable car that offers bird's-eye perspectives of the city of Porto on the way up, as well as fantastic photo opportunities from the top. Enjoy expansive views of the Duoro River, wine cellars, and picturesque red-tiled roofs of the houses. Stick around and explore the other sites located here, such as the upper level of the Dom Luis Bridge and the Serra do Pilar convent church. Buy a one-way ticket up and take the descent by foot to save money and see more of the historic buildings and streets. Tickets include coupons for several port tastings in different cellars, so do this activity beforehand if you plan on sampling some wine later in the day. Make Teleferico de Gaia part of your personalized Vila Nova de Gaia itinerary using our Vila Nova de Gaia trip itinerary planner.

  • Very good, cheap and fast. Worth take you to well close to the restaurants and cellars. Recommend!

  • Now it is €6 one way € 9 go back but once on top you can cross by bridge d. Luis and so avoid the climb to the city center. Another solution from the bottom at the exit of the bridge right take the feniculaire which costs only € 2.50 with a less beautiful view and that get you a little lower than the cable car.
