Easy and short

If you use the bridge go up the hill and take a cable car down. Admire the view of Porto from a nice perspective.

This was another offshoot of the Yellow Bus tour. Between port tasting and deciding on a lunch spot, we hopped on the Teleferico for a cable car ride up to the Dom Luis bridge. The top station is just a short climb to the upper deck of this bridge. There is also a nice park near the bridge on the... More

it's worth taking these car either up or down to Gaia for the vantage point it offers. We had walked across the top of the Dom Lois I bridge so it was easy to take the Teleferico down. Good views.

It's €5 each for a 10 minute trip. The view is amazing and the ride is pretty cool. It's nothing crazy, but if you're a tourist it's something you should do. It saves you a walk down to the riverfront. It includes a wine tasting at a local place, which was amazing and totally worth the €5. Go for it.

It is one those tourist things that have to be done, like the funicular and a tram ride ! From ribeira take the funicular up to the top level of the bridge, stroll across and take the Teleferico down to the river and enjoy the all round views from both.

Great view ;) Price could be better for Portuguese national. Ribeira Gaia is great for Porto wine lovers and good food

A simple but quite fun stop at Gaia, near the great wine houses and with a fantastic view of Oporto, I highly recomend giving it a try. Not expensive, not to much time consuming. Really nice.

We only took this ride because it was raining. Yes the views are great but I would suggest spending a little bit more and having a drink at the Yeatman Hotel. They have a great balcony up on the hillside that offer even better views. That way you actually get a drink out of the cost and you get the... More

Only 5€ and a port tasting included in ticket cost. Or, 8 € return, which seem reasonable; and there are also 20 € family (return) tickets for 2 adults with children (we had 3). If you start from the riverfront, then it is also the quickest way to get up to the bridge. Stunning views to Porto old town, bridges... More

You have to check the opening hours of the teleferico because it closes at 19.00. If you are visiting the Cavas is a good point to finish since it will return you to the bridge to cross again into Porto and to cross the bridge over the Douro is a very nice experience.
