You will get a nice view of the Douro river and easy access to the area above the quays of Vila Nova de Gaia. The ticket price may be a little high.

We took this to save our feet, and were rewarded with wonderful views, plus we had a pod to ourselves. Definitely worth using!

We enjoyed the ride especially as we walked the whole day through Porto. Rather expensive but you get a voucher for a port wine (that we didn't drink...) nice view, but not more spectacular than from many viewpoints. Though relaxing for our feet ;)

The panorama was great but we can have similar view from the bridge or the hill beside. After a full day of walking around Porto’s hill, it was great to take a rest with the Teleferico.

A good way to connect the cellar's visit with the metro line to Oporto's downtown. Meanwhile, you can rest a little by Morro's Garden, take a refresh at the bar near the telepheric stop, before climbing to the amazing sunshine view over Douro's River at...More

We took the cable car to get back up to the top of the bridge after spending an afternoon walking around Gaia. Short trip but worth it for the views across to Porto.

It is so easy to have a special view. For 3 Euros you can have a fun trip by the cablecar at the port in Gaia. From the cable cart you have a fantastic view to the famous harbor side of Porto. From the top...More

An easy way to get to the walking bridge from Gaia to Porto. If you just want to have an aerial view, it is worth it. Look for the Rabbit made from rubbish while on the ride. They offer you a port tasting as well.
