Off the Beaten Path in Europe

Ride Lisbon's Beautiful Elevator

Large arrow left

Walking in Lisbon can be a hilly affair but you can ride in style on one of the city's classic elevators.

The dramatic Santa Justa Lift (Elevador de Santa Justa) connects Lisbon's Baixa, the lower town, and Carmo Square, in the upper town.

Yes, you will likely have to wait in line, but the crowded, bumpy ride, makes up for the discomfort in atmosphere and spectacular views.
