Nice view on what is essentially a tram. It was designed by one of Gustav Eiffel's apprentices. It's the only one of these left in Lisbon. Great views on a short ride. DON'T take it going down.

Quick and relaxing way to get to Bairro Alto, during the 2-minute-ride there's a lot of street art pieces to see.

It is way to expensive. I mean it takes only 8 min too walk up the hill. The charge You 3,7euro. It is not worth it because there are so many people in it so you can not see anything.

The street that the elevator runs on us really cool. It is all lined with murals and the trams are painted. They are pretty cool to watch.

Every tourist takes it, but it's nice. It takes you up to great views. Be careful as it's known for pick-pockets.

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
