Portugal – Historic Centre of Oporto, Luiz I Bridge and Monastery of Serra do Pilar

With thousands of Liverpool supporters travelling to FC Porto for the UEFA Champions League last-16 tie at the Estadio do Dragao tomorrow, we’ve put together this handy guide for your trip to Portugal’s second-largest city…

Located along the Douro river estuary, the historic coastal city of Porto is both picturesque and vibrant, so there’s plenty for travelling Reds to experience ahead of a 7.45pm GMT kick-off.


The quickest and easiest way to travel the 11km from Francisco Sa Carneiro Airport to Porto’s city centre is by Metro.

The E-Violet line (Aeroporto – Estadio do Dragao) runs all the way from the airport to FC Porto’s stadium and you can easily hop off in the city centre at either Trindade or Bolhao station, which are about 30 minutes into the journey.

An ‘Andante Tour 1’ ticket, which costs €7 and can be purchased at any of the automatic ticket machines, is valid for 24 hours across all the metro lines, STCP buses and CP urban trains.
