Having this card was so great. We took the metro and the bus all over Lisbon. Well worth the price. In addition, we visited several museums. This was well worth the price!

Picked our cards up at the airport. Took the metro to our Airbnb, used the card at the Elevador Santa Justa and the Pantheon. Great first day in Lisbon

A great way to get around the Lisbon area and see the sites at a very reasonable price. I’d call it essential.

Good value Especially if you like to be on the go and want to max all the sight seeing.

Excellent purchase all means included and also monuments of great interest.
