The tram is quite a ride. These are quite old trams and have that old world feeling. Well it is quite inexpensive for one, covers a lot of ground and you get to view a lot of the city in a different way, starts from a open big area, climbing slowly some broad roads, goes into a narrow old city...

During our stay in Lissabon we took this tram. It was worth the money, because we took it all the way from thes startpoint Martim Moniz to Estrela. The trip itself was really crowded and nothing special. It is interesting to see the city and admire the power of a small, old fashion transport like this. It was on our... More

I was in Lisbon for about 2 weeksand that attraction became my favorite - by the end of my journey I could recognise any building from the route and orient well in the city. I loved the rides! For the first ride I would recommend you to wait for the empty\ half-empty tram to remain seated during the ride and... More

Tram 28 is the "local" tram that takes you through the back streets of the old part of a Lisbon. It's a small but interesting insight into where some of the local residents live. Narrow and extremely steep streets add to the adventure

We queued for over an hour to take this tram to visit the castle, Unfortunately, our tram driver didn't bother to say when we were at the nearest stop to the castle, so we finally got off 2 stops later (along with most of the other passengers!!). It was a long, up-hill walk to get back to the castle on... More

This tram is amazing. See all the wonderful sites of Lisbon very cheaply - hop on and hop off. See the Miradors. Word of warning!!!! Not racist at all.....but there are gangs of Romanians working this route (E28) - who will relieve you of your money, handbag, camera as quick as you can say Jack Robinson! It probably won't happen... More

We loved to take the tram. Takes you to some beautiful scenery and you can just use the same ticket as for the metro. It was, however, really busy and we had to stand most part.

I would def recommend this tram ride , you get to see a lot of Lisbon in very little time. I would recommend to get of at the station castello, there's a huge terrace with a lovely view of the city and river.

Ride this trolley from beginning to end for an unbeatable tour of the city. Some say pickpockets are an issue, so use common sense, but don't let it deter you.

if you have never seen a tram is very cool but a tram doesn't surprise an italian at all, or at least doesn't surprise me at all.
