The tram is a great way to cross the city and see many different neighborhoods, sights, and places that are otherwise far flung for cabs and cars. Yes, it is crowded, but it is a happy crowd and the views at the top make it...More

Go early to beat crowds. Great fun. Use rail top up card. Excellent value. Great way to see Lisbon. 12 to castle also good.

You can actually walk up the hill in less time than it takes to wait for the tram, but it is great fun and enjoyable. You will be cramped! Very much liked it.

I spent a long weekend in an apartment high in Alfama, and relied on the Tram28 to avoid a very long climb. Twice, I waited over 30 minutes, only to see a tram jammed with tourists enjoying the experience.

Very cheap using the rechargeable tickets, goes regularly to the most important points of the city. Take care, there may be pickpockets, especially when the tram is crowded.

Tram 28 has numerous stops around the city. It stops at all the landmarks, making this mode of transport ideal for tourists. However, at peak season, the tram is full of tourists and getting a seat can be difficult. All in all a very exciting...More

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

We got on at Praca Martim Moniz where the tram starts from. At about 10am in January there were enough people in the queue that we had to wait while three trams filled up, then got in the fourth. You are lucky to get a seat... More
