A great tram experience

Try and take this tram as early as you can to avoid it being too crowded.Steep streets and rattling carriages add to the experience.

We spent a bit of time on tram 28 and I wish we had been on it a bit longer. From a previous visit I can recall its tracks run along a lot of the city's highlights.

When you see the width of some of Alfamas streets it defies a tram being able to access such areas - but it does and with a grace and attitude that makes you look in wonder what an incredible act of planning and engineering this was and still is. Buy a day ticket or a Via ticket and let the... More

Would highly recommend this tram route. We went mid afternoon, but there was a very long queue, so we decided to come back the next day in the morning. Well worth it, as no queues, we got a good seat, & plenty of opportunities to take photos. The tram took us all around the city, up & down windy streets.... More

After struggling to find the starting point, we rattled up and down hills at an alarming rate. The warnings of pickpockets meant that I was focused on looking at people's hands rather than the views. The end of the line is very abrupt and I would not recommend trying to walk back as we did - it is easy to... More

We took the tram one morning and used it to get around and finished an almost complete loop throughout some cool, amazing areas in Lisbon. Yes, it can get crowded but it is still awesome. There are sings warning you to be mindful with your property and pickpockets.

Tram 28 is a vintage yellow tram that takes its passengers around Lisbon. Watch how close they get as they pass each other. They can get through the narrowest streets.

This is one of "the things to do in Lisbon" We enjoyed it so much. The tram navigates some pretty tight streets. The turns they make are eye popping. Right up to the buildings. If you get a chance take Tram 28!!

This was one of the "must-does" in Lisbon according to all the guide books but the trams were so busy even in February that people couldn't get on. We did eventually get on one but it was the 28 not the 28E so it did a different route. I am glad we got the cost included as part of the... More

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighbourhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
