After a full day of walking, exploring Lisbon, we were ready for a ride in one of the old Trams to find our restaurant for dinner. Very well maintained, other passengers were friendly. Reasonable cost. Great mode of transportation to avoid walking the hills in Lisbon. We were fortunate that the stop was very near our hotel....this became our favorite... More

A short break (3 days) in Lisbon gave me the opportunity to get away from the constant rain in UK. A professional guide was on hand which proved to be essential. I saw the tram illustrated, briefly one evening hurrying back to its depot. My trip was in the Autumn of 2015

Tram 28 is famous but the funiculars in Lisbon work very well indeed. Although all seem to be smothered in graffiti on the outside it is a good - and fun - way to negotiate some of Lisbon's steeper hills

We tried both tram 28 and tram 12 to travel around the centre of the town. Great to travel in old trams which were much better than the newer tram 15 to Belem. Lots of character. If you get the 24hr Carris pass you can ride around all day.

These are both old time ways to travel around the hills in Lisbon. waits can be long but the scenery is great. We enjoyed all the neighborhoods we were able to see. If it weren't for the lines, I'd rate them a 5.

A 24 hour travel card allows you to use all trams, both old and modern, the funicular, and the buses. The tourist tram no. 28 appeared to be grossly overcrowded so we gave that a miss - we couldnt see the pleasure in being packed in like Portuguese sardines, with the possibility of also being pickpocketed!! There are several other... More

The trams are an excellent way to see the intricate streets of Lisbon. We were fortunate to experience a private tour via the trams of Lisbon on a beautiful Sunday in late October. Ours was a private tour including port wine and pasteis de nata (the wonderful egg tart pastries of Lisbon and other parts of Portugal) The trams navigate... More

We went for a whole journey with the tram 28 and was absolutely worth it. You can see the city from different perspective. We also had a ride to Belem with the tram 15, which was a modern tram. I can recommend the Elevador da Gloria and Bica to make postcard perfect photographs. I just loved this old monuments. The... More

The card is 0.5 Euros and a 24 hour pass for 7 Euros gives you full access (also Metro and Buses). The Funiculars are particularly good and less grief than the Elevator (don't bother!); good way of enjoying the city.

Staying in Chiado & Carmo

Neighbourhood Profile
Chiado & Carmo
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally, "squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used to. You can also enjoy breathtaking views of Lisbon from the Elevador de Santa Justa or the Carmo Convent, for example. A commercial neighborhood at its core, especially for its Garrett and Carmo streets, Chiado is to this day a mandatory visit in Lisbon.
