5 euro per person one way and worth every cent. We really enjoyed the experience. A photographer took our photo when we got in, 5 euro. It was ready when we got to the top.I know it sounds tacky but it is a nice reminder of a good experience.

This is a fabulous ride down to the River Duoro in Porto. The view is fantastic and almost like a roller coaster (not scary though) as it reaches a drop and slowly descends down to reveal some magnificent views of the River and across to the other side. A great drop off point to stroll along the river and explore all the fabulous seafood restaurants. Or walk across the bridge and view Porto from the other side of the Duoro - fabulous! It's a very quick ride and for a few Euros well worth it!!

Enjoyable way of saving your legs to get up from the river. Excellent value for money as it is included in the andante Metro ticket.

It's not to bad walking down to the River Douro but you certainly wouldn't want to walk back up! The fare is 1.60 Euros per trip and worth every cent of it.

Going up to the Batalha and down to the Ribeira might get you tired. Dont. Use the Funicular. It is fast, clean and practical!
