"This historic streetcar system has been running since the 19th-century.

The city of Porto, Portugal has many historic buildings, but for fans of transport history, the three remaining lines of the Porto Tram System are a thing of wonder.

"While itís possible (and indeed, enjoyable) to walk from downtown Porto to the coast, not everyone is up for the hour-long walk, especially in the height of summer. A popular alternative is the vintage number 1 tram, that slowly grinds its way along the river from the Casa do Infante in the old town, finally stopping near Passeio Alegre, a small manicured garden at the mouth of the Duoro.

Single tickets are a reasonable Ä3, but try to get on as close to the start of the line as possibleóthe trams can get very busy in high season, and only run every twenty minutes.
