“Nice short ride”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

We went up to the top as a way of crossing the bridge on the top deck and not having to climb the hill on the Porto side. Good views for photographs. Cost was E5 one-way, which was the same as our cab ride from the central Mercado to the Ferriera bodega! Quite frankly, it is way cheaper and better to get a cab back to the centre, but it is a nice little gondola.

“Skip. No touristic value.”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

This funicular is simply a form of public transportation. There are no views of anything. It is short, uneventful and overpriced for what it is. It does get you up the hill, but there are ways to get around without using this. We ended walking across the bottom of the bridge, taking the funicular up, finding nothing worth seeing in the area, then walked back across the bridge on the top.

“It's a quick way to the top”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

It's an inexpensive and quick way to get to the top if you don't feel like walking. Nice views from bridge above, but nothing out of the ordinary.

it is not too much (2 euros if I am not mistaken) and it is good if you are too tired (especially if you have to go up ;)

“Welcome transportation from the river up the cliffs.”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

This funicular is the savior of those who enjoy walking along the River, visiting the wine caves, shopping and eating at the river front. The walk back up to the city can become almost insurmountable in the heat. We found the funicular just across the lower bridge on the Porto side of the river. For 2 euros it whisked us to the top of the cliff area, allowing us more time to explore the upper city of Porto. (and conserving our energy for the remainder of the day.) :)
