The Lisboa Card (Lisbon Card) is the official Lisbon tourist pass. It gives visitors unlimited use of the city’s public transport (bus, tram, metro funiculars and elevators), as well as free access to 26 museums, monuments and other landmarks. The card is also very useful as it includes priority access and discounts to several tours and other attractions not included in the card.
The Pass not only gives you unlimited use of the city’s transportation, but it also includes free travel on the trains to Sintra and Cascais.
These are some of the attractions and museums included in the tourist pass:
You’ll get discounts from 10% to 50% on all other visits in Lisbon.
The Lisboa Card is worthwhile for travelers who wish to explore Lisbon thoroughly. If you are in Lisbon for a few days, it is probably not worth it, since you won’t have time to use the public transportation or visit enough attractions to make it worthwhile. If you wish to eat in the restaurants included in the Card, then it becomes a little more interesting.
If you’re a student or have the European Youth Card, the Lisboa Card is definitely not worth purchasing, since most attractions offer important discounts to young people.
You can either get a 24, 48 or 72 hour Lisboa Card, depending on the days you’ll be in Lisbon for.
You can buy the Lisboa Card in the Lisbon Airport, in the Praça do Comércio and Restauradores Square.
