Perfect connections to explore Lisbon and some perks such as. For the observation tower/extract, which would cost €5.30, was free. Unfortunately, there is no discount for the castle excursion (entrance fee €10), but the view over Lisbon is worth it.

Very practical Lisbon card. We took her for 72 hours. Very easily amortized with transfers from the airport to the city center by metro, the use of public transport, certain entrances to the sites to be visited. So do not hesitate.

Excellent service provided, very useful for transport and even more so if you plan a visit to the city by taking advantage of the possibility of free entry to the monuments where it can be used.

Remember to see if you still have to go through the museum ticket office to get the final ticket because on some sites it is necessary.

Allows you to take public transport and visit many places.
