Interesting route

An inexpensive way to see old areas of Lisbon. You can use your day ticket to pay and it is much cheaper than a tourist bus.

We used it to get back to our hotel. It was fun to see a 100 year old tram in use. (I remember these from childhood). Well maintained, good for my train buff teen.

Long lines, long waits to get aboard tram 28. Like sardines in the tram, standing and not seeing anything. There are many more trams and buses in Lissabon to get to the tram 28 destinations. You might have to transfer a few times but you will actually see something that way. Lissabon has great public transport so it is easy... More

Really a cosy and extraordinary experience. While sitting in this tram one can enjoy parts of Lisbon, that one might not have seen. Pictorial vues all over, in a nice comfortable way.

In my oppinion the best part of the Tram 28 tour is arround the narrow streets of Alfama. A great way to start your sightseeing in Lisbon. Go arround 9 in the morning where it is less crowded and hop on at the first stop at Praça Martim Moniz. TIP: buy a Viva viagem card then the price is much... More

Great way to get to the castelo. We got on a bit earlier which turned out to be lucky as it soon filled up and by the last few stops there was no room for any more passengers. A nice lady also gave up her seat so I could sit down with my daughter. We ended walking back down to... More

In theory this should be a lovely scenic journey. Reality may be that you have to wait a long time at the tram stop as the tram arrives full and cannot take on all the people waiting. You might well have to stand and this can be uncomfortable. We also found that when we wanted to get back from 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"!
