The 3 funicular routes are fun to be on, especially going up the steep hills. Although a single fare is 3.5 €, the 24 hour Viagem ticket (about 6.0 €) covers them as well as the metro, trams and buses. The shortest one takes you...More
Tram 28 stop was just a few walking steps from our front door and our means of public transportation. With the purchase of the Via Viagem ticket - minimal cost and worthwhile investment if your spending a couple of days in Lisbon. Tram 28 hit...More
The locals know the location of numerous lifts and escalators to make the climb to the St George Castle easier but for visitors the tram system is the most obvious way to go. If you don't get a seat and you can't find something to...More

We did a few journies around Lisbon in the trams and funiculars of Lisbon. We even had an extended tour by getting in the famous number 28 going the wrong way!

Go for the Metro, instead.
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally, "squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used
to. You can also enjoy breathtaking views of Lisbon from the Elevador de Santa Justa or the Carmo Convent, for example. A commercial neighborhood at its core, especially for its Garrett and Carmo streets, Chiado is to this day a mandatory visit in Lisbon.

Hi there is a metro station close by, along with bus stops. But not sure about the tram, but again it will only be a short distance away (I know there is stops near the main plaza 5mins away). It all depends where you are planing to go? Think about getting a day ticket as it is better value.
