Travelling upon arrival by plane
The easiest and cheapest way to get from Porto airport to the city center is to take the metro (en.metrodoporto.pt). Line E (Purple) connects airport station to Porto city center. “Trindade” station, in downtown, makes connection with all lines. For the first time, you need to buy the card “andante”, reusable and rechargeable, and a title Z4. The trip takes around 30 minutes.
