If queue starts at the street - you'll wait for an hour. Service is slow. You can climb or use modern elevator in a bags shop nearby to reach the balcony and for the tip you pay extra and climb the stairs. I would recommend...More
I enjoyed the Santa Justa Lift from a number of different locations, over a number of days, but we never bothered with the actual ride.
The queues were simply too long for what would have been a cramped and short ride. however, the structure itself...More
This may be a famous tourist attraction but doesn't stop the staff being curt and rather rude. The web site said it was open until 2245 so having walked across Lisbon to arrive at 2100 we were really looking forward to our visit. One member...More
If your going to Lisbon, Portugal you don't what to miss this attraction. The views are fantastic you can see all of Lisbon . From the river to the hills and all of the surrounding monuments. You may have to wait for the elevator (...More
The view is great BUT the wait was very long. The ride up is not worth the wait (you do not see anything on the ride up - you are in an elevator). You can easily skip the ride up. It is an easy walk...More
A huge cue and only 1 elevator working, its was also very overpriced. For a 40 second lift journey...... rip off. When the lift stops you then still have to climb 2 spiral staircases to get to the viewing gallery.
Not far from our hotel this imposing elevator designed by a protege of Eiffel provided excellent views of Lisbon. Although there was a wait in line to get to the lift (one of the two cars was not operating when we visited) the views of...More
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
imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!

If you are fit and able don’t bother with a ticket. At the top of the steps turn left, then first right walk up the short hill to the church. Go to the right of the church and you are at the top of the lift. We did it in less than 15 mins and looked down on all the people queuing!
My husband and I are planned to go to Portugal for the first 2 weeks of September. First 3 nights Lisbon, then rent a car, drive Porto for 3-4 nights, Evora for 2 nights, Algarve (Lagos I think) for 2 nights, then back to Lisbon for our last night. So this is what I am thinking: Lisbon: Sintra / Belem / Tram 28/ Santa Justa Lift Drive to Porto: Obidos / Fatima / Coimbra Porto: Book Store / Cable Car / Don Luis I Bridge / Wineries/ Ribeira District Drive Evora: I really want to drive the...More

I would not drive all the way to the Algarve just for two nights, particularly in your timescale, which isn't 2 weeks in Portugal, as it seems to be 11/12 nights. I presume you are including international travel in your counting. Take in a beach closer to Lisbon to save travel time. You are going to struggle to fit all the various towns into your timescale IMO, so you may want to cover Evora as a day trip from Lisbon.
How to get to Time out Market from Baixa area (2 Replies)
I am planning my day in Bairro Alto, How can I get to Time out Market from Bairro Alto? Should I get Elevator de Gloria or Santa Justa Lift to get to Bairro Alto?
June 24, 2017|
If you are in Bairro Alto take the Bica funicular or walk down Rua do Alecrim, at the end of both you'll be rather close the Market in a flat area.
The restaurant at the top of Santa Justa Lift (1 Replies)
When I went to Lisbon frequently in the 70's we used to go to a restaurant at the top of the lift. Called A Quinta ,I think. Going back after a long time in October.Anyone know if it is still there in some form?
