This was the first of the three funiculars that I had on my itinerary. We had the Viagem card for all public transportation in Lisbon (except the train to Belem and Sintra) and it is worthwhile to get the card. The ride up and down...More

This special tram is preserved very well and using it is a unique experience. It's a must see in Lisbon, maybe more important that tram 28. Use the Viva Viagem card (with the 24h option).

This is a short ride, but the longest compared to Bica and Justa lifts. We did not pay the 3.70 Euro each way as we had the 24-hr unlimited Carris transport costing only Euro 6.30, so we barely paid anything. The tram was full of...More

Walking up the hill would really be hard, but luckily you can scan your Viva Viagem card and only pay 1.45 euros if you have single tickets loaded. (Or use the all-day pass or whatever other deal you've chosen). It's a really short ride but...More

Part of the public transportation. With the Lisbon card you can enjoy the ride free of charge. Short ride to the hill on one of the symbols in Lisbon.

This is another overpriced "experience" for Lisbon tourist. It was very expensive for the 2.3 minutes up the hill. Thankfully it was not as packed as Tram 28 (AVOID THAT EXPERIENCE ALTOGETHER!), but it was still pretty packed with tourist. I would not recommend.

Another way to experience the city. A short ride up to the top of another hill of Lisbon. A very old car and you are not sure that it can take you up, but it does.

There was no queue, so we tried this lift. The hill is steep and half way up, there is organised graffiti some of which was quite good. You can use the metro card on here, or pay for the trip as you board. I still...More

no queue to ride, frequent service and fun. great view from viewing point near the top. Free if you have an all day travel card, definitely worth buying one of those which are available at all metro stations.

Get your an all day pass at the subway station. That way you can ride all public transportation all day a lot cheaper. Ride the elevator as well
