It was an amazing ride from Martim Moniz to Estrella park. It clattered and bumped along, slow and fast. Thought a maze of narrow streets and thoroughfares. You see some of the real Lisbon. Go early about 9.00am with the locals..it is not busy. We paid for one way in the tram, about 3 euro each. At Estrella park you... More

This is outstanding, an historic, clattering route through narrow, winding streets, up and down steep-ish hills. The scenery ranges from modern city squares to ancient castle walls, tiny artisan shops to the seat of government and from sea views to the Se cathedral. It seems to be full of camera-wielding tourists for much of the time. We took a breakfast-time... More

Really enjoyed our trip on tram 28. Excellent way to see the city whilst enjoying the thrills and spills of the hills, which at times feel like a mild roller coaster. Got on at the start of the line to ensure that my gf and I would get seats on the left hand side (best views of the city). The... More

If you choose the right place to entre the tram you will quite fast get a good seat. For example Martime Moniz.

We read a lot of reviews before visiting Lisbon. We heard horror stories about pick-pockets and how many people were robbed. We also heard that if we used common sense, we would be fine. We ended up spending a few days in Lisbon and we did end up taking Tram 28 all over Lisbon. Here is what we did -... More

The queue was so long so be prepared to wait at least 30 mins. In the sun it was to much for us. We did go on the lift instead and I'm sure waiting for the tram was worth the wait.

The ride is so much fun and a must do while in Lisbon. Driving up or downhill through narrow old streets of Lisbon is a little scary but real fun. A photo is a must.

When I was recently in Lisbon I rode Tram 28, Tram 12, and the Santa Justa elevador. Great fun. I also rode the metro frequently, and Tram 15 to Belem. I have some advice for other travelers. First, pickpocketing on the metro is not as bad in Lisbon as it is in the metros in Madrid and Barcelona. That's not... More

If you don't like a busy tram ride pay your 18 Euros for the tourist tram that runs the same route - you will see it pull up always with empty seats available. Why? Because for 2.85 Euros you ride the local canary yellow tram. It's like journeying along the internal arteries of a human body - up close and... More

The ride is a nice way to see Lisbon, but you are nearly guaranteed of being pick pocketed. We were, and when we went to the police station to report it, we stood in line with 30+ other people that all were there for the same reason. Why the police do not do something about it is a mystery but... More
