Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    It is fun ride up to steep hill. Skip it if the waiting line is long. Perhaps coming down it will be less crowdy. It is cover by metro card, although is more expensive ( ~ 4 euro).
    Nice view of Lisbon from the top of the hill.

    Travelled from Lisbon (Santa Apolónia) to Porto (Campanhã) on an AP service - the train ran on time, the seats were comfortable with plug sockets and WiFi, and there was plenty of leg room (in Turistica/second class). We also purchased a coffee from the buffet service on board which was well priced.

    The CP app could be better (maybe it was me, but I couldn't find a live train time viewer on the app so had to rely on a 3rd party website to see if the train was going to depart on time beforehand) - the app also crashed when showing proof of purchase to the conductor, who luckily was patient and happy to wait for us to pull up the email confirmation instead.

    I am reviewing LISBOA CARD for any tourists thinking of taking this card.

    The underground network in Lisboa is very good. It costs approximately 6.60 Euros a day and includes the bus. However if you are thinking to take the Lisboa card including the transport with the Tram and pass to the Museum, I would definitely advise you not to do it. The Lisboa card costs 48 Euros for three days and it does not include all the entrances to the museum, you get a very small discount of 10 or 20 % to enter some of the museums. If I am in Lisbon again I would get day passes for the public transport and just pay full price for any museums I am interested in.

    It's a good public transit system and we used a lot of it. If you add a bunch of Euros to your Via Viagem card you get very cheap rides on all systems. Frequent service. Only negative is the omnipresent staircases in the Metro and malfunctioning elevators and escalators.

    We used the train to travel to Sintra on a one day return trip. Buying the tickets was very simple and easy without any hassles, at Rossio station which is an old, but large and, architecturally quite nice station. The train was good, safe and clean and we found seats easily. The trip itself was comfortable and we arrived at our destination on time. The same was the case on our return trip.
