Trams in Porto
With the passage of time, trams in Porto have become a popular tourist attraction more than a means of transport, especially with the arrival of the underground system, buses and regional trains.
Currently, only about a dozen vintage trams run down the three remaining tram lines in Porto. A great way of discovering this delightful city, is to take a heritage streetcar down Porto’s cobbled streets in the city centre, or as the Portuguese call them: “carros eléctricos”.
If you want to explore the city on this charming means of transportation, you can take either of these three lines:
- Line 1: Infante-Passeio Alegre. It runs from 9:30am – 6pm.
- Line 18: Massarelos-Carmo. It runs from 9:15am – 7pm.
- Line 22: Carmo-Guindais Batalha. It runs from 10am – 7pm.
