The Porto transportation card is an excellent way to get around the city if you staying there for several days. If you are in Porto only for one day (like I was), I would recommend paying for each bus/metro ticket instead of the transportation card. It will likely be cheaper. The only downside of doing this is that you will not get the discounts for museums, churches, bars, and restaurant that are included in the transportation card.

The Porto CARD is very practical for getting around Porto without worries (bus, metro, etc.). Reductions in many tourist activities in the city, on the other hand no reduction on the historic tram (the only means of tourist transport not concerned). For visitors who come by plane, pay attention to the closing time of the airport tourist office, we find several schedules on the internet, in fact it closes at 6:30 p.m.

There are two options for the Portocard. If you only want to drive and don't want to visit museums, you can drive cheaper. We saw that in the interactive travel agency at the airport. The public transport in Porto is clean and very good. The timing is also very good.

Very convenient for transportation facilities provided & great saving with discount for museum/ tourist spots entry

Bardzo pomocna rzecz dla mniej mobilnych. Transport dociera wszędzie.
