The Guindais funicular

Our last recommendation on what to see in Porto, or rather in the old town, is the funicular. As we have already mentioned, Porto is a city that can be visited very well on foot, but you have to bear in mind that some climbs are quite steep. This funicular takes you from the Ribeira to the cathedral, at the highest point.
