A very short ride up and is probably more of an experience going down than up. It certaihnly saves a climb if you're headed up from the river.

Travel up to the top of the town from Pont de D. Luis 1 on this pleasant trip which takes about 5 minutes for €2.50. Great views of the bridge and river as it climbs the hill.

An interesting ride, ok if you are tired and want to go up in the city. Pretty expensive though for a couple of minutes ride.

A little expensive for such a short trip but there is a nice view of your quick. Regular service up to the top and even runs at night when the beige is lit up. This is a modern funicular

This is a great way to get back to the top from the river and so much easier than climbing up the stairs

A little expensive at two and a half euros each way but was conveniently placed as we had an apartment nearby so could more easily transport our luggage and shopping!!
