(3.1/5 based on 1,400+ 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.

  • Cost is 5 euros for a short cable car ride one way, with some lovely views across the river and parts of the town. Perhaps a bit on the expensive side for such a short journey, but rewarding. 
  • Cute because it amuses and in addition allows us to take pictures and enjoy a unique view. In addition VERY USEFUL because with a few euros we save a lot of uphill and downhill walking KEY THING IF you are visiting the city of porto!
