Lisboa Card

Tourist Pass for Free Sightseeing and Transportation

Lisboa Card

The best investment you can make on a trip to Lisbon is the Lisboa Card. Tourist passes aren’t always great deals, but Lisbon’s is a major money and time saver. It offers free or reduced admission to most of the city’s attractions, and also allows unlimited rides in all public transportation within Lisbon (metro, buses, trams, funiculars, and trains), as well as trains to Cascais and Sintra. The only transportation service that’s not free is the AeroBus, which is the bus that goes from the airport to the city center, but the card still offers a 25% discount (to reach the center from the airport for free, take the metro instead).

The card may be purchased for 24-, 48-, or 72-hour periods, ordered online (see link below) and then picked up at the tourist office at the airport, which is found in the arrivals hall and open from 7am to midnight (if you arrive on an earlier or later flight, you may pick up the card at the tourist office in Comércio Square, in the city center). The card comes with a free booklet with tourist information about the attractions covered.
