Join us on a journey, between past and present, by means of transport that allow you to take unique trips across the Invicta city.
Travel back in time aboard a Tram
It was 126 years ago that the first tram ran on the streets of the city of Porto.
Today you can travel aboard one of these historic trams, along nine kilometres of incredible sightseeing scenery. The Tram 1 takes you along the banks of the Douro River, on a journey between the Historic Centre, near Funicular dos Guindais, and the Passeio Alegre Garden.
If you like to admire the city's historic sights, we invite you to travel on the tram 18 that connects the historic area of Massarelos to Cordoaria Garden.
If you want to discover the most iconic routes in Porto, embark on the route of tram 22, a loop route between Carmo and Batalha/Guindais.
Go down to Ribeira on the Lada Elevator
Formerly known as “Ascensor da Ribeira”, the Lada Elevator allows you to travel vertically between Ribeira and the Barredo slope.
During the short trip and once you reach the top floor, you will be able to admire a wonderful view over the Luiz I Bridge, the Serra do Pilar Viewpoint and Cais de Gaia, where you will find the famous Port Wine cellars. On the lower floor, you will be in Ribeira, part of the Historic Centre that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, surrounded by the authenticity of Porto. It is a must for those who visit us.
Go from Ribeira to Batalha in the comfort of the Funicular
Built in 1891, the Funicular dos Guindais is more than a simple means of transport. It is a unique ride between two iconic areas of the city of Porto: Ribeira and Batalha.
Whether going up or down, traveling in the comfort of the Funicular allows you to admire a unique view over the Douro River and the Luiz I Bridge.
