Riding on the tram 28 can be unique experience only if you are taking the ride when its not a rush hour. We got on the tram 28 around 7pm and since the traffic was chaotic, the driver had to stop on every 5 seconds.

We wended our way through very narrow streets and climbed uphill at a leisurely pace. We had some great views of the river and Castelo Saint Jorge. Coffee and custard tarts at the terminus before heading back

A fully restored tram that runs in a circle round the city. Get there early because the queue can be an hour long. A classic way to see the city.

We went to the terminus, to join a long queue of people, waiting to board the 28. We had to wait about 30 minutes before we could get on. There were no seats left, so we had to stand the whole time, luckily at the...More

To leisurely sit down for around an hour inside the tram cart and tour around most parts of the city, travel by Tram 28 will be the best way as it meanders through the narrow streets on the eastern part of Lisbon. But remember to...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
