It’s a short ride but it’s worth to do it. It is not taking too long but you can enjoy the wonderful Douro river and the sunset, if you do it late in the afternoon!

Try not to miss out on this cable car ride above the port lodges with views over the Douro and Porto. Takes about five minutes and is a fine way to get back up the hill to the top span of the Dom Luis Bridge...More

Great way to end a day of site-seeing you get to enjoy the view of the cellars from above and an easy way to get back to the upper walkways of the bridge to walk back to Porto.

We took the short trip to the bridge in the teleferico. Some lovely views and photo opps. Not too expensive but be sure to sample the local free Port included in the ticket price.

Nice way to get from the quayside in Gaia to the top of the Ponte Louis bridge. Good views. They also give you a voucher for a free taste of port in one of the less well known port cellars, which was a bonus 😎
