“Great views over the town.”
Review of Teleferico de Gaia

Teleferico de Gaia
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Ok, so they take a photo of you as you sit in the cable car and try to sell it to you for five euro at the top. Besides that it is a good view over both Villa Nova de Gaia and Porto. At only five euros for a ticket to the top it is worth it for the view - but you also get a free taster of port at a nearby spot too!

It is a long way from the top of the Ponte Luis to the Port houses at the bottom. You can walk or drive, but if you want tyo enjoy the view take the Teleferico. Its easy and not expensive. Staff will help you if needed. Costs are very low.

While the round trip is relatively brief about 15 or 20 minutes there and back (you can pay for just half), you get a lovely vista from above. The cost was slightly inflated, but I thought it was worth it--after having walked the city for several days. There is also someone who takes a picture of your group and will sell it to you for 5 Euro at the halfway point--which is less than similar places in the US--they actually got a good shot.

Reasonably priced, it also saves a walk back to the bridge when the weather is too hot! Great views of the Douro and the riverfront of Porto. The cars are modern, non-creaky!, and clean.

The funicular on the other side of the river wasn't working so I walked across the bridge and took the cable car. It beats walking up. The trip isn't long so it's expensive for what you get. It does give you a chance to look at all the restaurants and wineries below and decide whaich you'd like to eat at. Any way it's fun too!
