Very good concept, indeed it is worth taking the city pass (very quickly profitable between the price of public transport and visits). In addition, it allows reduced queues, in fact there is a normal queue to buy tickets and another to go to the monument, with the city pass there is another small queue to convert the city pass into a ticket (for the Belem tower in particular, for the monastery there is no need to have a ticket) Lisbon a very beautiful city in any case

The Lisboa Card is a very useful tool to visit and move around the city. The means of transport (trams, metro and buses) work very well and it takes very little to get from one district to another. In addition, the card allows free admission to many museums, panoramic points and other tourist attractions and offers convenient discounts.

Great idea to get the Lisbon Card. We made the purchase in advance so that we could pick it up at the kiosk at the airport and thus take the metro to get to the hotel. Many trips made by metro, train and tram and several visits included which allowed us to visit many places during our short stay of 5 days.

It's really good idea to get Lisbon card as the sightseeing places in Lisabon are sometimes a bit far from each other and Lisbon card gives freedom of movement in addition to free/discounted entry to sightseeings.

So much fun hopping on and off the transport to get around and see lots of things. Only wish we could have done 5 days - so many things we didn’t manage to do!
