How do I get to Porto from the airport? A taxi from the airport to the city center may cost around 20 euros. The distance from the airport to the Residência Novais Barbosa is 17 km, and can be traveled in about 23 minutes in a car. On weekends, holidays, and later at night, a surcharge of 20% is automatically added to the fare on the taximeter. A less expensive way to enter the city is the metro. The metro’s violet line connects the airport to the city; arriving visitors can take the violet line to the Trindade stop—about 25 minutes—and then take a taxi the remaining 3 km to the Residência Novais Barbosa. The metro stop is in front of the arrivals zone of the airport. This site has additional information on taking the metro from the airport.
