  • Excellent moment of travel especially the descent out of the tunnel to arrive at the foot of the bridge of the douro. The price of 2.5 euros per person is worth it, because it offers you a great view.

  • It helps a lot in the ascent of the Ribeira area but the value is too lift for a few minutes. If the elevator is too crowded, you probably won't be able to see the view of the river.

  • Defo worth it! The best way to get on the top level of the bridge. Also it takes you straight to the old tram stop, route 22.
  • Great views and lovely city panorama.
