Traffic Information

Like most big cities, traffic in Porto can get fairly congested. The ancient regions of the city feature narrow roads, but most drivers adjust easily after driving on them for a short period of time. In case you are traveling longer distances, you can take advantage of the circular highway system that characterizes the city. In order to get around the city faster and more conveniently, you may consider using the highway A20, or Via de Cintura Interna, which connects to several city exits and motorways. The A41 connects the city to the neighboring cities in the country, as well as to other major metropolitan highways. We recommend that you take advantage of our GPS system to help you select the shortest routes and avoid the traffic. You also need to understand that the city has multiple one-way roads, that don't always have alternate directions. Please be sure to read the road signs prior to making a turn, to avoid turning the wrong way down a one-way street. If you need some more tips on driving in Porto and the rest of the continent, check out our article on driving tips for Europe.

We had a great experience by Mr. Baptista and his colleague Mario.

They took their time explaining the toll system carefully, even though he had a queue forming. Great Service!
