The airport in Porto is a very nice airport. It is a little bit noisy like many other airports. But to play constantly music is not what I appreciate. It is hard enough to understand what is said to the customers anyway.
I like the Metro in Porto very much. It is easy to access, at the airport and other major stations there are people to help you.
Be aware that you have to change lines when going from the airport to the major train stations (and vice versa).
I'm extremely disappointed that line E doesn't connect the major train stations with the airport any more. For me that might be a reason to fly to Lisbon instead of Porto because the connection there is much better.
