Driving with the Santa Justa elevator is a nice experience. A really good option from the lower to the upper section from Lisbon. When you leave the elevator on the upper station, you can go by walk one floor higher to an open terrace from where you have a perfect view above the town. As it's always an explanation to... More

We didn't go up as the view can be seen from many other places better. If you are looking for a good view visit the hill above the train station.

Enjoy the a cast iron elevator with filigree details, built in 1902 to connect lower streets with Carmo Square. There is a small fee to use it, then enjoy the spectacular view of city. Just be prepared for the queuing line that could run longer than expected, pick up the correct time to visit (between 2:00 and 3:00 PM is... More

Great day. We were in Lisbon for just one day and didn't even know about this place. Saw it wile walking in the city. The que was quiet long but it was going fast, only waited for about 15-20mins to get in. Kids were exited to go on it. The view from the top is amazing!!

An amazing object to view from street level. €5 to go up the top. You can access the top for free from the streets behind it. Its a pretty steep walk though. The view from the top at dusk is fantastic

Personally I would not have spent money to ride this very brief elevator ride. The best part of the elevator is the outside - the part you don't have to pay to see. BUT since it is included in the Lisbon Card (and also the 1-day unlimited ride Metro Card), then do it if you have time. Keep in the... More

This is one of those must-do items in Lisbon. Do it, I guess, but don't feel sad if you don't. The views are nice! You can use your Viva Viagem card to charge the trip.

You can walk up to the same level that the elevator takes you pretty easily (whenever we went there was quite a queue at the bottom)... and then you pay €1.50 to get to the platform at the very top for some brilliant views of the 7 hills of Lisbon. The structure itself is a marvel too

I liked but ...was ok. From the St Jorge Castel I had a best view. You must to go because it's on the heart of the old city, and... the ticket is very cheap.
