How to get here

Car, Train or Plane

How to get here by Plane

Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport, known only as Porto Airport (OPO), is located about 6 miles from the city centre.

Some of the main airlines that travel to Porto include Iberia, Lufthansa, Luxair and Ryanair.

It is easy to catch a bus, metro, or taxi from this airport directly into the heart of Porto.

It’s comfortable and has first class facilities for the travelers’ every need.

How to get here by Taxi
  • From Porto Airport to the city center will usually cost between 20 to 30 Euros. Taxis in Portugal are metered and therefore haggling over the cost is not an available option.
  • There is a taxi rank immediately out of the arrivals exit door of the airport, and the journey will take you about 20 minutes.
How to get here by Metro

If you’re coming in by Metro from the Airport, there is a station right outside the airport door. You can reach most of the city centre in about 30 minutes for €2.60.

Metro from the Airport runs every 20 minutes for most of the day on weekdays, otherwise every 30 minutes every day from about 06.00.

You will first need to purchase an Andante Card, which you can re-charge at any time. You will need one Andante card per person – this card may also be used on the STCP bus lines.

Please be advised that if you purchase 10 trips you get one extra for free.

Remember to validate your card in the machine before you get onto the Metro.

How to get here by Train

If you are travelling from Lisbon to Porto, you can use the Train.

Most Lisbon trains run from Santa Apolónia station, which is right on the edge of the city center. You can also catch them at Gare do Oriente, which is closer to the Lisbon Airport.

“Intercidades” and “Alfa Pendular” trains arrive at Porto Campanhã station, and if you have booked online to Campanhã, you can connect with local urban trains free of charge for the 3 minute run to the city center station of São Bento.

The average travel time between Lisbon and Porto is 2h50 minutes. The first train leaving Lisbon is at 06:00, the last as 21:39. There is an average of 32 trains a day between Lisbon and Porto, leaving approximately every 44 minutes.
