ALways great to travel in those, you just have to find a little place and beware of pickpockets, they are many of them in tram 28. Same cards to use than in the subway. If one is full, just wait for the enxt wich is never far!

Much better than any sightseeing bus tour you might try - this is the real thing, taking you to some of the most beautiful and genuine places in Lisbon, including Alfama and Chiado. Narrow streets, old houses, wonderful views, it's definitely an incredible journey! And you get to know some of the locals who use it as a daily transport... More

It is a different way of having an over look of the old Lisbon, its small streets and buildings a long the seven hills. It is an interesting experience to see the driver skills, up and down, in the middle of the cars and people walking on those typical squares.

the tram 28 takes you to all Lisbon places in Barrio Alto, Baixa and Alfama which covers everything in the center of the town. It's often crowded, so take a cab to the 28 starting point in Barrio Alto. You'll find a seat there and can stay on board for some 45 min. for the same price. Or you decide... More

A fun way to get around Lisbon, but don't lean out - the gaps on the narrow streets are tiny. Also fun to watch the tram drivers deal with the tourists who park in the wrong places.

For 2,85 euro per ride you have a great trip through the streets of Lisboa. Try to sit next to the window, at the back or in the front. Be early otherwise you will be waiting in a line of at least 30 minutes. Have fun!

Hop on the tram and let it ride you through the city. If you like an area hop off and then hop on a next one to continue your trip. Great to do on a first day

Fabulous quirky bumpy noisy and at time a tad frightening as it trundles up and down the very narrow streets!!! Fab value if you buy a green card 50 cent and top it up (like an Oyster card) 10 euro last 5 days AND included a trip on train to the beach!

We took tram 28 around 10plus in the morning and listened to earlier advise on Tripadvisor to board from the first stop at Martim Moniz (nearest metro is Martim Moniz). The tram 28 stop is next to hotel Mundial at Martim Moniz. We sat for a full loop of the tram 28 and alighted at the last stop. It was... More
