Good value for the money BUT I wish I knew what a pain in thr *ss it’s to have to go print the tickets and go to a travel center to get your cards. Better communication and instructions needed. Also the page says good for two days and it’s actually 24h

Cartão foi muito útil. Acesso fácil aos transportes e atrações. Eu só deveria ter me programado melhor com relação aos horários pois as atrações normalmente funcionam apenas de 10 as 17h então vc não consegue tanto tempo e precisa se programar.

Very straight forward to collect the card from the Airport Information Office. If you enjoy walking the majority of the attractions are walking distance, but having access to public transportation when the weather gets worse is a plus.

Really useful, used via the app it shows you on the map all the museums that can be visited, some of which are known through it. It is excellent to have the means available, if you have the possibility I recommend the 2-day option

For those who plan several visits and trips, this is the essential card!! No supplement, I even took the opportunity to make visits that I had not initially planned! I picked it up very easily in the T3 hall of the airport
