We only tried it for experience of it and tiredness. The driver who topped up our travel card was miserable maybe due to tiredness. It departs at the bottom every 15 minutes. We were sat in the middle, should have chosen the front or rear...More

Well worth taking the funicular up the hill, saving your legs. We went at teatime and it wasn’t crowded. We also treated ourselves to a trip back down too!

We waited for some 10 min before getting onboard together with a few locals and a bunch of other tourists. A very nice and crowded experience!

Despite this line being of very little 'practical use' I'd highly recommend a visit. I visited at 10:00 on a Sunday and there was no queue and very little crowd so it was the perfect opportunity to take some great photos! There was something really...More

Elevator Bica is one of 3 in Lisbon, with graffiti on the one and another one that is red. I absolutely loved this as I'm also a photo lover and this elevator has a beautiful view when walking it down.

Chose to ride on this funicular (on an extremely hot day) because we didn’t make the very steep walk up the hill after a full day of sight seeing. We didn’t need to queue and we used our Viva Viagem card which we had preloaded...More

Worth a trip if you are travelling to Barrio Alto. We took it at 8pm - no queue at that time. Great photo opportunity.

We stumbled upon this funicular by accident. It took us up a graffiti covered street into and through the Bairro of Lisbon. It is fun to ride and saves a very steep walk.

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
