Worths the waiting that even if you have free entrance still exists... The view is amazing and panoramic over this beautiful city, There is also a cafe that is probably always crowded. You should climb up the last floor using the stairs.

Amazed to see such a huge queue to go in a lift. It's worth ticking of the to-do list in Lisbon (and free with a 24 hour carris pass) but easy enough to walk up (or use the escalators from Baixa-Chiado metro) then ride the...More

Paying for the lift is unnecessary as you can merely walk up the hill and discover some shops on the way. This way you only pay €1.50pp to go on the view point which is worth the money! The entrance can be misleading as you...More

There was a very long slow moving queue for this so pick your times of visiting carefully. When is best to go ? I don't know it was just busy.

Quirky lift in the middle of the high street. You can buy your ticket inside the lift but try and have the exact money because I'm not sure they can always give change. There is a nice restaurant up there where we had a coffee....More

The Santa Justa Lift brings a touch of Paris to Lisbon as the design reflects the Eiffel Tower. This is good and all should take a minute to go up in the Lift to the upper levels. Great photo op of city view or for...More

It costs €5 pp to ride this elevator up from Rossio/Comercio area up to the Convent Carmelo area. Not worth it unless you have the Lisboa Card. Plus there are long waits. You can get the EXACT same views by taking the path to the...More

A very nice way of taking a look at Lisbon. You have to pay 5.15€ but is worth it since the elevator was made early XX century and it has an unique style. During summer is open from 9 to 23pm and during winter it...More

The sole purpose of this quirky lift was to get a great view over the city. We had to queue for a short while, but it was worth it. It's only when you look down on the streets, pavements and praças that you can see...More

A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site,
Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply
"Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake
construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755
earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the
Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the

I think we paid about €6 including access to the viewing platform above. It's quite expensive but probably worth doing. A cheaper option for equally good views (if not better) would be to ascend the triumphal Arch at Black... More

5 Euro or if you have the open top bus package or lisboa card you get in free. I certainly would not have paid 5 Euro just for a lift as it was not worth it ( I had bus pass) You can enter the tower from bario alto for free... More
