Worth using this to go up to and down from Bairro Alto, ypur Lisboa card or day travel pass is valid. Only slight downside is they do absolutely pack it gill, which means sometimes you can't see too well.

I'm not sure why this comes up as a restaurant. It is not a restaurant, it is a mode of transportation. All of the funiculars in Lisbon are fun to ride, especially if it is off-season and you don't have to crowd in like sardines....More

I wouldn't make a special trip just to go for a ride, but if you're there go for it. at the top is a street with loads of good cheap eats.

Tricky to find but what a glory to find. Tucked away behind what appears to be a slightly open door is this cheeky and fun looking vehicle. Take it up the Da Bica to the top. Very friendly driver too 🙂

We chose to go up in the funicular when we were put off by the very long queue for the Elevador de Santo Justa. There are great views at the top, and since your ticket is a return, it's easy to get back down to...More

This funicular (elevador da Bica) is one of 4 that one can find in Lisbon. These are as traditional as can be. But nowadays are mostrly used by tourists. It's a very nice way to go from the river side Cais do Sodré to the...More

This attraction whilst a worthy piece of Portuguese history is vastly over priced and over crowded. It is manned by two nasty little men who on our visit tried to overcrowd the vehicle and then when we along with other people refused to get on...More

stupidly expensive! Here is the trick: buy a 24 hour pass in the metro station, it'll cost you 6E plus a 50 cent fee, its good from the first time you validate it. ride the 28 out to one end and back to the other,...More

Bairro Alto, Bica & Cais do Sodre
Enjoy a cocktail, discover a jazz club, hit the dance
floor or simply grab a beer and catch up with your
friends in the street: Bairro Alto, Bica and Cais do
Sodré are the core of it all. Amazing rooftops,
restaurants, cafes, bars, art galleries, museums and
theaters abound. Start off by admiring the river from
the Santa Catarina belvedere, have a cocktail at
PARK's rooftop bar, try a typical Portuguese steak, or
