Trip Planner: Europe / Portugal / Northern Portugal / Porto District / Vila Nova de Gaia / Teleferico de Gaia
Take a ride on Teleferico de Gaia, a cable car that offers bird's-eye perspectives of the city of Porto on the way up, as well as fantastic photo opportunities from the top. Enjoy expansive views of the Duoro River, wine cellars, and picturesque red-tiled roofs of the houses. Stick around and explore the other sites located here, such as the upper level of the Dom Luis Bridge and the Serra do Pilar convent church. Buy a one-way ticket up and take the descent by foot to save money and see more of the historic buildings and streets. Tickets include coupons for several port tastings in different cellars, so do this activity beforehand if you plan on sampling some wine later in the day.

Teleferico de Gaia Reviews
tres peu d'intéret de payer 6€ par personne. le téléphérique ne monte pas très haut. Il vaut mieux monter sur les hauteurs de la villes pour avoir une belle vue sur la ribiera more »very little interest to pay €6 per person. the cable car does not climb very high. It is better to climb to the heights of the cities to have a nice view of the ribiera
Très pratique, jolie vue mais coûteux. À faire au moins une fois lors d'une visite à Porto surtout pour une première. more »Very convenient, nice view but expensive. To do at least once during a visit to Porto especially for a first.
A very expensive experience for only a few minutes! It cost us 21,5€ one way, for a family of 4! Although it has a nice view and it looks new and well-kept, they need to reduce their prices.
Very nice attraction which takes you up/down. It is quite short but you can take few nice photos from it. 6 euros is per person for one way and they give you voucher for free wine tasting in one of the cellars down which was not so bad. The whole ride is few minutes and it is not scary or dangerous in any way.
