Nice but only worth it if you're able to sit. Too many people have to get on so you're mostly busy with avoiding toppling over and can not enjoy the views or take picture s.

Tram 28 is some type of a must for a Lisbon visit. Unless you get a seat you stand in a crowded trolley going around city. Personally we enjoyed walking the steep hills by ourselves. Take any trolley, you will never remember all the sights...More

Not sure what the fuss is all about. It can get too crowded and when standing up the views are interrupted by the windows... Better to walk the route and enjoy the views and places on the way at a leisurely pace...

Fantastic old fashion ride caught taxi to end of line where it starts from so ensured having a seat. So could take good pictures. Had day pass which is great value at €6.95. You on tram and elevator metro buses great.

Take this at night if you want to avoid the queues and crowds, you can sit where you like. Most popular and scenic tram route in Lisbon.

The tram offer many route to do. They furnish earphone so you can have the translation. The explanation of what you have on the route was very interesting. You can also get off to explore more a place and get back on the tram later....More

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

Yes, it’s actually regular Lisbon transit. The only challenge can be that if you don’t get on near the beginning you’ll likely have to stand.
