Porto is a vibrant city in which will mesmerize you with its charm and lovely people. We visited Porto in the first week of September and enjoyed it a lot! In this guideline we will take you on a tour through the second largest city in Portugal.
Porto has a great public transport network. The metro, bus and tram (all from the same company and integrated in the tickets) can take you anywhere in the city and neighboring cities. There are different tickets available for your convenience: You can buy a ticket for € 0,50 which is rechargeable. One hour unlimited travel is as cheap as € 1,20. You can also purchase special visitors tickets for 24 hours for € 7,- per person or for 3 days for € 15,-. We recommend not taking them, unless you are planning to take the public transport to a lot of places during your stay.
