The cablecar offers a great view on the city of Porto and the river Douro! It's only a 5 minutes ride but the experience is definitely worth doing it!

The ride with the cable car both ways is very short. During the activity you don’t see more of the city than you would normaly see from an average panoramic point. The distance that cable car rides is very short, however it was boring. I...More
