Don't bother wait for an hour and pay €5,30 each person for 5 sec in the evator. You can do it in 5 minutes walking to see the view from the top. Trust me not worth it!

We were lucky enough our guide did dropped us of at the top of the bridge so all we had to do is walk through the bridge then all we could go back down but he would have been really hard to go up first....More

The elevator ride is nice but typically it is a very long wait, crowded and you will be underwhelmed. Going to the very top and paying €1.50 was well worth it for the view!

Queues can be long for these lifts, went around 9:30am & only waited around 20 minutes. Tickets can be purchased there, or entry can be gained with numerous tickets (like the 24hr city pass) which is much better value for money. Lift takes you to...More

We had to wait 45 minutes in line. Fortunately, it was included in the 24 hour pass for metro/bus. The ride up takes less than a minute. You have to pay 1.5 euro extra to go to the Belvedere. Nothing special for us. Not worth...More

Unique attraction in Lisbon that you cannot find in any other cities. There is a long queue for the ride so please expect increased wait time if you would like to use.

This tower was built by a pupil of Eifel of the tower fame. It as a lookout platform at the top and lift serves the purpose of going to Chiado via hills.

In the busy season, there are extremely long lines to ride the elevator up. However, you can access the top and the stunning observation deck from the courtyard around Chafariz do Carmo. The observation deck is absolutely amazing, and a Lisbon card gains you access....More

I strongly recommend a visit to Elevador Santa Justa in the evening during sunset. The view over Lisbon's quarter Chiado and Baixa is just great and the elevador itself is a masterpiece in steel construction work built by engineer de Ponsard.

A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site,
Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply
"Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake
construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755
earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the
Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the
