Took a quick touristy trip up and down the hill (as you do) as we were able to ride on the 24 hour metro/bus/tram pass that we bought. There is plenty of graffiti to admire on the walls. Worth a few minutes of anyones time.

Though Lisbon has many of these and we managed to board one of them, was a cool experience. Just in a few minutes you are up the hill and have great panaromic views of the beautiful and colourful city. If you have day pass then...More

I don't know what is wrong with some people. OK this (a) only lasts 3/4 minutes (b) you have to wait/queue a bit and (c) it's covered in graffiti - but so what! The hills (and therefore the need to get up those hills) are...More

The tram climbs a steep hill and will provide you easy access to the park at the top (with good views of LIsbon). Make a right turn after exiting the tram and the park is right there. Also, if you walk down the block from...More

A long waiting time for couple of minutes of transportation. I am not sure it's worth it, but this elevador is very nice looking and part of the charm of 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
