We waited for 15’ to finally get in the elevador, and we moved 10’ after that. And all of that just to get down and get up in one street. 3,60 for nothing... Except the pictures we took before we went inside.

connecting the Rua de São Paulo with Calçada do Combro/Rua do Loreto. This funicular railway line is maybe the most picturesque and goes up to the start of the Bairro Alto district. Coming from Cais do Sodré this is an excellent choice. The funicular entrance...More

This elevador has been running for nearly 140 years - there can be long queues during the day - it only takes a couple of minutes but it is fun.

A novel experience and for us there were no queues - we waited a couple of minutes before getting on. Maybe we were lucky - it was a Sunday afternoon. A short but interesting ride with cars crossing and pedestrians walking along side! My only...More

We didn't have to queue and we got a spot at the front for the ride up the hill. It was good fun but very quick. I definitely wouldn't recommend for anyone who doesn't like confined spaces with lots of people.

An old and picturesque funicular. More interesting to see it from outside rather than to take a trip with it. The trip with it takes less than 10 minutes at it makes you feel back in time. Pretty crowded in many moments as long as...More

Anyone even vaguely fit will make it to the top/bottom of the hill before this funicular, because it's so slow to load and unload passengers and traverse the relatively short distance and there are normally a lot of people waiting to ride it (especially at...More

We didn’t actually ride this one as like the others the Elevador da Bica had queues to utilise it and doesn’t actually run that frequently so you can probably walk it quicker if you are fit and able enough to manage the climb up or...More

You can use this elevador with your public transport card. It's a fun way to go down if you want to reach Cais do Sodré to visit the market. You can almost touch the laundry hanging at the balconies.
