so old but so nice to travel Lisbon city on this tram. often very crowded and shaky, but if you can catch a seat, you could stay on for ever.

I was informed that Tram 28 was a "must do" for Lisboa. It looked like fun. We knew it would be busy so we sought out the first stoop on its route. But in the end there was a bit of a tussle to get on board the tram and it was tight standing room only after loading up at... More

We visited Lisbon in November and were surprised at the number of tourists and how popular this attraction was. We waited for the tram at Placa de Figueira and after 20 minutes of waiting at the back of a queue we walked down to the main commercial square to join the queue there instead as it looked unlikely we would...

Very busy at weekends three trams passed us. We took the number 15 tram out to Belem to sample the famous pasteis de Belem and to see the monument to Vasco de Gama. We people watched, shopped, drank and ate...a wonderful city!

We were told that a ride on Tram 28 is a must, well we did take two rides and my comment is maybe not so much. Very crowded, we felt like portuguese sardines! If you cannot get a seat I you see nothing, keeping your balance occupies your time. Nest tip and speaking from personal experience...watch out for pick pockets... More

I'd take tram 12 any day! This is a huge tourist trap - a long queue, leading to a very full tram, all squeezed in. There is no way of knowing what stop you are at and if you aren't in a position by a window, it's very difficult to know when to get off. For a mainly tourist-used tram,... More

Let me first say we were in Lisbon in November...Not the high season. Although unique, this tram was overcrowded and lacked signage or verbal information about the stops. At the end of a segment, the driver would say that everyone had to get off and line up for the next tram. Finally we waited until the tram was at the... More

There is a sign saying "beware of pickpockets" and you better take that seriously. The Men communicate with their eyes. Two men corner people that get on the Tram, the third takes whatever is available. Then they get off at the next stop. It's hard to escape.

Fabulous way to get a view of central Lisbon and Alfama. Not really suited for people with mobility issues or people with pushchairs, just far too busy and cramped. However, if you can put the crowding aside and take in the views, nostalgia and atmosphere its a great experience. Check out the day pass which gives you hop on and... More
