We were surprised by the efficiency of the metro here in Porto, not too many cities that we have visited have a good system, but this was excellent (at least from the standpoint of a tourist).
The stations were sparkling clean as you can see from the photo and even the trip over the bridge between Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia gave you a birds eye view of the river and waterfronts on both sides of the river.
You should know that Porto is built on a HILL, seems everything is either UP or DOWN..so we chose to walk DOWN and then take the Metro UP. We would take the metro to a station ABOVE our hotel and walk down, much easier this way since these are some serious steep hills. (reminded me of Lombard Street in San Francisco).
