“great views and short queues”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

We stumbled upon the entrance to this attraction by accident after hours. In the daytime I think we might have missed it due to the crowds around the arch. The entrance is just under the arch on the right hand side as you are walking into the city. Entrance is cheap (a few euro), and a lift takes you most of the way up the arch. You then have to walk a couple of short flights of narrow stairs, but a good 'traffic light' system ensures you don't meet anyone coming the other way. The views from the top of the arch are wonderful and give you a different perspective from those traditionally found from the Santa Justa elevator, or from the various miradouros around town. This view lets you look up into the castle, and straight down the lovely patterned cobblestoned Rua Augusta

“Beautiful 360-view of Lisbon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

The entrance beneath the Arch is very well organized with kind and knowledgeable staff. An elevator brings you quickly to the second floor from where, after you take a short walk up the steep stairwell, you arrive at the platform on the top of the Arch with magnificent sculptures and breathtaking view of the entire city, best of which is beautiful Praca de Comercio right beneath the Arch. You can also combine the ticket with the interactive Lisbon story in the Historical Museum right across the square.

Beautiful arch. Near rossio plaza. Nice shops and pastelarias. Close to the waterfront. Not overly crowded once you pass through the arch.
