We took the cable car to get back up to the top of the bridge after spending an afternoon walking around Gaia. Short trip but worth it for the views across to Porto.

An easy way to get to the walking bridge from Gaia to Porto. If you just want to have an aerial view, it is worth it. Look for the Rabbit made from rubbish while on the ride. They offer you a port tasting as well.

Only with this trip can one see the river Douro banks of Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia from a great perspective. Always affordable and well worth it.
