This is a lovely way to get to the coast and see the countryside. Old tram very quaint. You must but a ticket from the office at Sintra you can not buy a ticket on the Tram. However you need to buy a return ticket when at the destination, this you buy on the tram so you can not book the return time, be wary if tram is full get there early if looking busy otherwise you will not travel.We took the trip all the way to the coast, spent some time wandering the some lunch plenty of restaurants. Nice way to spend half a day. Another tip, just before you reach the Sintra tram stop there is an old fruit/veg market well worth a look. Not at all tourist in this part of town, refreshing to see this.

Leave the Car, settle in as comfy as possible for an old tram and enjoy the whole ride what can only be described in parts as a mirror something out of green rolling hills of Africa.

The tram goes along the main road to the beach. Buy tickets at Vila Alda - Casa do Eléctrico de Sintra. Have small bills since they don't have much change.

This little tram runs from the town of Sintra to the beach. Most of the trip is along the main road so it's not the most interesting of rides, although you do get some good views of the Pena Palace and the Palace of Monteserrate, but the trams have so much character. Try and sit at either the front or the back of the tram so you get a better view.

The main problem is that the tram does not run very frequently and the timetable is very hit and miss. It's all a bit casual to be honest, but that adds to its charm.

Got the tram from Sintra to the beach. The kids loved it and so did we. Very screechy brakes at the beginning so not great for sensitive ears and slightly stressful returning due to the number of people wanting to get on and the limited places, particularly since some people were queue jumping. Overall a nice thing to do.
