Interesting and profitable card from the beginning to the end of the trip. Very simple to recover, fast, works very well. I was satisfied and seduced by this purchase!!

Collected at the exit of the airport Easy to use and allowing direct access and without counting the metro, tram and bus!

Lisbon pass is great help when you are traveling within Lisbon and Sintra. Also parking is very hard to find.

Very friendly and encyclopedic guides, Paulo and Isaac. Full of stories and welcoming.

Enjoyed all of the benefits of the card, especially free access to the Metro.
