It is a nice way to go up the hill ! We only went because we had a ticket that was valid for all public transport. It's too expensive if you pay only the furnicular.

Nice to see them roll pass, when your on the side. Not to nice when your inside and your like sardines. Ok to say you have done this and what not. BUT BEWARE... Pickpockters aplenty! There is a team of 3-5, they look easily not like locals, Roma/Indian looking. They dress to look like tourists, but in reality they're pickpocketers....... More

Use these for free with your hop on hop of yellow bus tour pass to obtain best vfm. The funiculars are quirky, great fun and representative of what's happening in the world of graffiti around Lisbon. Eye openers on many accounts

Elevator do Lavro is so much quieter than other funiculars . Beautiful square with rooftop views near the top station. 28 team is great but crowded so try and get to one or other terminus. And this would apply equally to the other historic routes.

Old style trams appear to be one of the major attractions in Lisbon, so we just had to have several rides. Firstly, in order to get to Belem and see the famous Belem tower, you need to take the tram 15. Our first ride was in a new modern tram 15 and it was fun but crowded. However, you can... More

Riding the trams / funiculars in Lisboa is something different to explore when traveling in Portugal, because you don't have this at home. Buy a 24 hours unlimited card and explore the historical trams and elevator in Lisboa - an inexpensive adventure for only €6.

we managed to get on the tram, the queue was not too bad, but the noise this tram makes is just so so bad. we survived as it took just 1,5 minutes to get to the final destination (the whole journey is only 1,5 mins), but i would highly recommend to listen to some music while you use it.

The trams and funicular are something I would suggest you only once during a trip to Lisbon. The queues are VERY long, the trams seem to be driven much too fast (and we were constantly advised to be aware of pickpockets).

Well worth the wait to ride on the old trams. Great views on the 28 up to the Se and the Castle. Plus NB .... 15 to Belem are newer, quicker and two large cars long making it a quick trip!

Lisbon has three working street funiculars and one street elevator which allow its citizens and visitors to move to and from its hilly districts more easily(The Lavra Funicular,The Glória Funicular and The Bica Funicular) Lisbon is a hilly city and cobblestone streets abound, thus “electricos” (trams) and “ascensores” (funiculars) help to get people around, especially up and down hills! They... More
