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.

A super little funicular railway running through narrow streets going to places as a tourist you dont want to go to. Good fun on a fairly rare type of transport.

We tried a few of the ‘elevadors’ of Lisbon but this was the most fun at night and picturesque in the day. Well worth grabbing a drink at one of the little bars at the top and watching the sun set.

Elevador da Bica is operating since 1892. The ride is short but impressive. The pantographs look amazing! Always be aware of pickpockets when the wagon is filled with people.

Lovely old-world funicular in the heart of Lisbon. Best part is it works with the city-wide travel pass!

Get a 24h card and take this entertaining ride for free, it is absolutely amazing!! Stop for a beer in one of the bars at the top, small plastic glass for 0,8 - 1 euro. Wish I was there now!
