This trip was free with our Yellow Bus Tours ticket. It’s a very steep climb up but a short trip. Good views from the top. We walked back down.

Located just off the Avenue Liberdade, this historic funicular tram is well worth the visit and the ride. We visited on a Sunday and, at first, the queue seemed quite long. That is until we saw how many people are squeezed onto the tram! The...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.

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

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
