Easy to order ( even from abroad), easy to pick up ( if you ignore the queue), makes the vacation pleasure easier.

It's great for public transport, no worries, you can get in or out, take the bus, streetcar or metro without a care in the world. And for museums it's great too, we visited quite a few that maybe without this card we wouldn't have done! Some of them are really worth it

It was good, but It is a long way from town. I wish I had known about the aquarium which is also in that neighborhood.

Quick easy access to the museum. Easy to download on our smartphone. The venue was spectacular and one of the highlights of our stay in Lisbon.

Very practical for transportation. The monuments that are "recommended" to be visited in Lisbon are not necessarily taken into account, except for Belém, but in view of the queue I didn't go there in the end. It's a pity, too, for the monuments in Sintra, I thought I'd get a discount but I didn't. I thought I'd get one, but I'm not. I thought I'd be given a detailed explanatory booklet, but I didn't get one, perhaps a mistake on the part of the person who gave me the card. It's very practical though, but you need to find out what you're planning to do first to see if it's worthwhile.
