The cheapest way to know Lisbon

The most charming way to see a lot of touristic spots in Lisbon. And it´s gonna cost you 2,85 euros - much cheaper than the sightseeing buses.

When in Lisbon it has to be done - cheap to ride - crowded - noisy - hurtling down hill - brakes screeching - impromptu stops should the pick up come off the wire - always seems busy - suggest early morning or late afternoon. WATCH OUT FOR PICKPOCKETS

Beautifully preserved old tram, taking you up and down from St George's and taking you back to when trams were first invented! A bit irregular - 3 quite easily come at once.

Nice way to see a lot of parts of Lissabon. Nice experience to see how this classy tram maneuvers trough small streets and hills. It's 2,60 euros for a ticket so I would say why not? I read a lot that it's very busy and takes long before you can hop on the train. But we hopped on at Martim... More

This historic and very very popular tram is a fun way to see the city, however be aware the ques can be long, and it can get very cramped once on the tram. We took one ride on the 28e. Then used the less popular 12e to see most of the attractions and sites, no ques plenty of seating.

The tram is old, crowded and offers a bit bumpy ride. It covers most of tourist attractions but you will need to do a bit research before hand, as the driver announces in Portuguese only. Be VERY careful of your belongings, as there are a lot thieves, we witnesses German couples got their wallet stolen, but caught the thief!

Tram 28 has scenic route, good chance to see some landmarks, charming streets of Lisbon. When the weather is nice its super crowded. Tram is used mostly by tourists

Crowded but I've been in worse crowds. Quite interesting to go on up the little roads. Suitable for familes with teenagers maybe not so suitable for younger children due to how busy it was.

Wonderful experience, but it's very important to start your trip at the beginning of the line at the Prazeres Cemetary. We took a taxi to the Cemetary, and then took the tram to the castle.

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"!
