Scenic Drive Historic Site
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.

Where to stay in Vila Nova de Gaia

Located just across the river from Porto's Old Town, Vila Nova de Gaia boasts a distinctive identity of its own.You can take advantage of the area's trendy riverfront district and its world-famous Port wine cellars by staying in one of the neighborhoods just south of the bridges to Old Town Porto. This puts you within easy walking distance of the wine cellars, while leaving you in close proximity to historical sites across the river by foot, bus, or taxi. Farther from the river are several international chain hotels offering comfortable rooms with high standards of cleanliness. You'll also find locally run inns and bed and breakfasts in the heart of the city's more residential neighborhoods of Cravelos and Mafamude.
