You will only appreciate Tram 28 if you go on it first thing in the morning. Any other time, you will be queuing for ages, then when you do get on it, likely to be standing up, squashed against someone. And you will need to be aware of you immediate surroundings in case of pickpockets rather than admiring the view... More

Perhaps iconic, but overcrowded! We had to wait for two trams before we were able to squeeze in. It's faster to walk to the top of the hill, though you need to be in decent shape to do so. I thought it was a must do while in Lisbon, but there are many other things to do in order to... More

The 'toe rag' pickpockets are in abundance on all the trams, but the 28 gets more than its fair share. You can usually pick them out, and it's the 'standing passengers' that are the easiest targets; if you get a seat, stay in it. One of the classics is for the PP's to work in pairs, with one looking very... More

Tram goes through the pedestrian precinct and up the hills on both sides. Big queues first thing at Martim Moniz and 40mins round trip, not all interesting. Often too full to get on and quite small so high season would be difficult. Worth getting on to go up the the viewing point above the cathedral where you can walk to... More

If you have the time by all means, it's crowded and packed. We ended up walking back and explore the vicinity instead as there is no guarantee that you will get in the next tram, some leave empty as they cut the trip for the local people to give way, in front of our hotel is the starting point of...

Coming from the UK where it has long been a joke that you wait forever for a bus and then two turn up at once - Lisbon seemed to trump this with 3 or even 4 at a time after a lengthy wait (the electronic signs didn't seem particularly accurate either). Even this number, however didn't seem to be able... More

I found this really boring as I was expecting some form of commentary. It's used by locals as well but mainly packed with tourist with no clue where they are heading. I enjoyed the not so commercial or tourist side of Lisbon. Not the best thing to do in the world but it's a great way of seeing the city.

I have just returned from Lisbon. On our second day we boarded tram 28 for a trip around the city. I sat next to my wife on the packed tram. A tap on my shoulder came from a middle aged woman requesting that I give up my seat for a mother & child. Middle aged woman is very persistent and... More

Cemiterio dos Prazeres is worth a visit in its own right yet this is also where from you can get on the famous tram 28 which will take you all the way through Eastrela, Bairo Alto, Chiado, Baixa, the famous Alfama up to Graca where we got off. You will have an opportunity not only have a glance at all... More

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"!
