When visiting old town Lisbon, you can't miss this line. The tram climps the high slopes of the city and its mandatory to take it just for fun. Bying a single ticket is expensive, but buying a day trip is unexpensive, and allows you to step in and out as often as needed. Don't miss it

The most popular Tram for tourists is the No28 as it passes through a greater part of Lisbon. However, less crowded and a little more interesting is the Tram No12 that does a circular route up to the castle through Alfama and back to its start point.

We rode on Tram 28 to get a sense of the city and because it is listed as a must do. We did get some sense of the city and I think it is worth riding for the history of the place. To get a sense of the city, I would prefer an on and off city bus.

My wife and I enjoyed the tram and bus system all throughout Lisbon. Tram 28 takes you through the old and historic neighborhoods of the city, and provides wonderful views of the Castle and from the Castle of the city.

Lots of people, but you great a great view of the city! Narrow streets, close cars, people - it's loads of fun to see how they put this tram down the old streets!

We purchased 35Euro cards for 72 hours of travel. Great decision. Tram 28 takes you on a fun rollercoaster ride through the older part of Lisbon dodging some parked cars by mms. I must do experience but wait for a tram where you can sit down.

It visits interesting places, but that is the only advantage. We went on the 28 tram few times. It was always too crowded. Felt like sardins. Sometimes we couldnt even get in, and had to wait for the next tram. I suggest using other transportation if possible: there are many normal bus lines and good metro, to most turists places.

Jump on it for a spectacular ride but make sure you start from the 1st stop otherwise too busy. Just stunning.

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"!
