“OK but not wonderful.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

Well not a lot to say. One euro 80, I think. Saves a steep walk, so probably worth it going up rather than down. Opposite the Pont Louis Bridge.

“Nice view of the city from the other Sid.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

It was a little pricey...but a good way to see the city and you are dropped off in the Porto area. You get a free tasting with your ticket to a Port House around the corner. Good way to start the tour

“Great views and not crowded”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

We walked from the other side of the Douro and took this down and back up after a short stroll below. We had fantastic views and the windows were clear enough to get great pictures. It was also fairly empty (in September) and we shared one car down with a couple and the car up was by ourselves.

“Very interesting!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

A very short and nice ride. You can use your metro travel pass to use this Funicular. Though a very short ride the view is quite pretty. Absolutely worth taking it
