Easy way to get from the top to the bottom in Porto. Easier that the uphill walk, Also gives a great view across the Douro . Well worth the 2.5 euro.

Not the best we've been on, not really any views, but our 10 year old liked it, bit dear for what it was

Although we generally prefer to walk most places, we decided to try the funicular for something different. It only costs €2:50 per person and is over very quickly, but you do get very good views - and a short rest!

We had been walking a lot and walking back up the hill was not an option, so the funicular was. This is a fast way from the riverside to near Soa Bento station. Nice views of the bridge Luis 1 as you move up!

This is a good way to get to the top of the bridge with some lovely views of river and bridge. If you have not been on one before its a good thing to do

2.50 Euros for adults and 1.25 for children. But on a hot day, it is worth the cost to avoid having to climb the many steps to get back up the hill to the rest of the city. I wouldn't use it to get down...More

Only a short ride but a must do, riverside and bridge views all very good. Not expensive either. Would suggest a walk over the bridge on the lower level then catch the cable car to the top, walk over the top level of the bridge...More
