This was interesting as both the tram cars were covered in graffiti; although properly done, not vandalised! The area in general was very arty and some of it was really good! We had walked up to here, wandered around the view point a bit then...More

You can use this Elevador with your public transport card. It's a fun way to go up or down to reach a different neighborhood of Lisbon.

If you're in Lisbon you have to try one of the funiculars. The Ascensor da Gloria takes you up to the viewpoint of São Pedro de Alcântara which offers great views of the city. Graffiti on the tram itself spoils the traditional appearance of the...More

One of the 3 funicular railways in Lisbon. Fairly useless to the visitor but great to ride on. Walk half way down and photo them passing each other. Cable hauled. All good fun and especially fascinating to the transport enthusiast.

Stylish funicular for a short journey. Appearance spoilt for us by all the graffiti on the tram - perhaps this is supposed to be "Urban Art" but we think it detracts hugely from the appearnce. Recommended for a quick ascent of a very steep area.

Must do in Lisbon!. Take this tram to the top through graffitti lined buildings and narrow streets. Great fun!

The Elevador da Gloria is one of several ‘funicular’ railway cars in Lisbon. These would be similar to cable cars in San Francisco and other places. Lisbon is a very hilly city, and the Elevador da Gloria connects the Bairro Alto (upper district’) in downtown...More

Buy a daily metro pass for 6.30 euros and can be used on trams, metro and furniculars rather than paying 3.70 for an extremely short ride up and down. Ride itself is okay, don’t see much but the view at the top is great.

The Elevador da Glória operates since 1885, electrified since 1915. The ride is short but nice, but be aware of pickpockets if the wagon is full. I recommend to walk down and then take the Elevador up, or to take the Elevador up and then...More

Yes, I had to wait awhile with others who were keen to take this old funicular. Yes, it is covered with graffiti and, yes, it's a fairly short ride, but it's unique and a bit of fun. The driver's compartment is splendid with its old-style...More

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
