Try it!

You must try it. It is funny and not to crowded. Not like 'Tram 28' with to many tourist. It doesn't last long, but you will win time.

Viva Viagem cards cost 0.5 euros and then you load them up with what you are likely to need. The best method is load up for 24hrs at 6.15 euros and this covers all the buses, new and old trams (red tourist tram excluded), funiculars and local metro trains. Great value for money when you compare that it is 3.40... More

The funicular is a perfect way to get up or down the steep hill of Lisbon where they are situated. You can pay on board from single or return trip, however, a day travel pass will get you on it. They are ideal for taking the strain off your feet

Lisbon trams are very cheap, run on time and a great way to see the city as well. On one of our journeys our tram broke down (it was an old type), we were all transferred into another one in about 5 minutes with a minimum of fuss.

we bought a three-day travel pass which covered metro, tram and bus. The trams are excellent, some are ultra modern and others tiny "street cars" which are old as the hills. In either case an ecellent way to get around this lovely city.

The best way to move around Lisboa are trams. You can reach almost every corner of the city and feel like living in old times! Just drop on a tram and see where it leads you. With a 2€ ticket you can travel all day long!

They seem to run regularly & are good to get a flavour of transport in the past. They get to various parts of the city. The Gloria tram goes up to El Bairro Alto & saves a steep climb.

Staying in Chiado & Carmo

Neighbourhood Profile
Chiado & Carmo
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.
