Teleferico de Gaia, Vila Nova de Gaia
(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.

  • A 3-minute drive for €5, relatively expensive and without great interest especially in overcast weather. The view of the Douro and the docks is necessarily friendly, but the view is almost the same that downstairs and walk it's quite feasible. According to me useless...

  • After some port, I can only recommend this cable car to reach the top of the bridge Luis. Very expensive. (5 euro per person for the ascent) saw the length of the journey but which have a wonderful Street from the top of the port wine houses, as well as... ribeira and douro!
