Scenic Drive
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.

  • We were two adults and two children. The journey is short but worth it for the views. He is accessed from the upper part of the city and the access is not well signposted. The cabins are for 8 people about, but if there is no tail left one for each family

  • Will enjoy a fabulous view over the Douro River, porto wine cellars, and a fabulous view of the city of Oporto, the picturesque ribeira district.

  • And journey of a couple of minutes while watching the Duero and the other shore. In our case, we didn't do more than a few minutes of collation that was worth climbing

  • it's nice to take a look on Gaia and Porto
  • Not cheap but comfortable.
  • One of the best panoramas of the port. Go across the bridge, Louis I turn right. There's an observation deck and a funicular. Great view!

  • A beautiful view of Porto and Gaia plus provides a comprehensive overview and magnificent riverside areas.

  • Landscape of Porto and Gaia with a unique perspective. Worth the ticket. On top of that serves as transportation between the cais de Gaia and the serra do pilar. Can leave to visit and come back down with the same ticket.
