Good but some of the metros are not manned by humans so if you have problems with the ticket machine you have a problem. Ask someone how it works first as you have to purchase the card first using the machine and then add how many journeys you want to take. We purchase the one for metro train and bus

These were a great site to see. We made sure we went to all 3 of them but only rode on 2. It is a short ride and you may wait a while if you get there right after it makes it trip but it is fun none the less.

We stayed in the financial district and used public transport. The discount tickets cover trams and funicular as well as tour buses and we went on the famous 28 tram and both city funiculars. The trams rattle and get packed but they are fascinating and well worth the effort. Get on at the beginning of the ride and you might... More

They don't call Lisbon the city of hills for nothing... These transportation methods are fun and save a lot of steep climbs !

We found the old trams much like the ones in Istanbul. We had an adventure on one. There was an accident in a tram on the same line (the yellow tram). It had gone completely off the rails. I don't think anyone was hurt, but the tram was completely immobilized having embedded the driver's end into a building. It made... More

We loved the red tram car tour through the hills. It was after a nice lunch and it was great to see all the lovely neighbourhoods and listen to an audio guide. Quite expensive though.

you have to ride in the the old town on the sistema, by a card that gives you acces to metro, the trams, busses and train, you can recharge at any time. The Antique trolleys are a view of the old Lisbon, it is a must ride and a nice way to get around the city; be aware of pickpockets¡

If you don't particularly want to huff and puff up the hills of Lisbon, seek out the funicular and tram network and enjoy the real feel of transport around the City!

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.
