The view from the square is magnificent, but the conditions to go up to the Christ's feet are not ideal for families, claustrophobic people, or someone with disabilities. There is no A/C, only a week ventilation that during summer time is not enough. The ride...More

You can’t walk across the main bridge so you will need either a taxi, go on a group tour coach or, as we did, hire a non-electric tuk tuk. I’m so glad we chose the latter option as crossing the bridge in an open top...More

Whether you are religious or not, this is well worth visiting. The views of Lisbon from the base and top are stunning. It’s a 6 euro cost per person (cash only) to catch the elevator to the top, with some stairs (steep and narrow) to...More

I think it's all covered in the review. Turn right out of Praça do Comercio and follow the river. You will eventually come to Cais do Sodre where the Ferry Terminal is.
