Elevador da Gloria is an iconic funicular in Praca doc Restauradores . It is worth going up to this steep hill via funicular. Long wait but short trip to the view point.

There are a lot of mixed feelings about Elevador da Gloria. To be honest, the ride is very short and the line is fairly long, as it runs every 10 minutes. BUT, it is an iconic part of Lisbon, so I would say, When in...More

By now you probably are aware that Lisbon is a multi-level city. Certainly, after an hour in the city, you are very aware. The Glória Funicular runs up and down the steep incline from downtown Lisbon to the Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara. What...More

The funicular takes you up a very steep hill up to a viewpoint. You can buy tickets on board. Much better than walking up!

This is crowded and sort of pointless.... the only reason I would get this is if you literally couldn’t walk up the steep hill. The funicular takes only a few minutes to get to the top and it is more of a gimmick, I wouldn’t...More

It was a short but steep ride from low to high area of Lisbon. As you may have know Lisbon is a hilly area and sometimes a funicular is another option to Uber or taxi. I saw several beautiful graffiti billboards along the route.

Don't pay silly money to do this short trip but fine if you've got a 24 hour pass. Nothing special. Lots of graffiti on walls on way up but nothing to see otherwise.

This funicular is a great way to get to the viewpoint on the hill above. The views are great and well worth using the old tramcar.

Worth going just to experience the whole idea of public elevator transport and see what it’s about, but nothing more than that. The view from within the elevator is obscure with high concrete fences covered in poor quality graffiti. The ride is about 2 minutes...More

Old trolley that will take you to the top of Bairro Alto district where there are beautiful views of the city and great restaurants. Much better than the elevator that takes much longer and there is always a long line that moves very slowly.

Chiado & Carmo
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally,
"squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers
plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can
stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its
streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and
viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the
famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa,
having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used

We were there in March so not to many people. 18 will just about fill the tram but there are two of them on a relatively short climb so not too much waiting time.
