Best way to get a real feel of Lisbon tram runs approximately every 10 minutes buy you ticket from a tourist shop Before boarding so save a few euros can also hop off when you want to have a walk round lots of fun not to be missed

A cliche tourist experience but no less enjoyable for that. Be prepared for the crush and don't expect to get a seat. There will be two people standing for each sitting down at peak times. The tram trundles along picturesque steep narrow streets narrowly avoiding parked cars and even front doors of houses. Buy a Viva Viagem card with 24... More

I saw a lot of reviews about this and thought I ought to try it. It ended up being useful as well, as it takes you up to Alfama and back down to Estrela. It's really old and cute. I'm amazed something like that is still working. The track is on normal car route so it's affected by same traffic.... More

We took this tram to and from the castle and it was easy to catch each time. As it was January there were no long queues, so it was easy to get on and off. We had a Lisboa Card which we just swiped as we got on, very easy.

We hopped on and off numerous times during our honeymoonmoon in Lisbon. It goes everywhere and it's one of those iconic features of this beautiful city...

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.

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.

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.

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"!
