You can hop on a Porto streetcar and tour the city looking through its beautiful windows.
Currently there are three routes in Porto that can be done by streetcar. Here are the details:
Tramways of Porto
Electric Tram No 1 Infante – Passeio Alegre
The stop of the electric trolley number 1 is next to the “Igreja de São Francisco” and the “Palácio Da Bolsa” in the Ribeira, and takes you from there to Foz, making a nice route along the river. It is the longest ride.
It stops next to the Porto Tram Museum.
Electric tram No 18 Circular Massarelos – Carmo
The number 18 leaves from Cordoaria, a few yards away from the Lello Bookstore, and goes to Massarelos, next to the river. Like the previous route, it also stops next to the Tram Museum.
Electric Tram No 22 Circular Carmo – Batalha
Attention: This route is suspended for 3 years starting November 2021, due to construction works of the metro pink line.
The number 22 makes a circular route between “Igreja do Carmo” (in Cordoaria Square) and Batalha Square.
It passes by some of the main streets of downtown Porto such as Santa Catarina and Avenida dos Aliados.
We recommend any of the three routes, although the longest and most relaxed one is tram number 1. We also suggest leaving the streetcar ride for the less demanded hours of the day, as the ride is much more enjoyable if the trolley is not too crowded and you can do it sitting down.
You can get more information and the stops on the official website.
- A single ride ticket costs 3.50€.
- Two trips on the same day 6€.
- Two days adult ticket 10€ / two days children ticket (ages 4 to 12) 5€.
