We stayed at The Mundial Hotel in Lisbon - which is very central and on the flat. The Tram 28 stops and starts outside. It takes you up to the Castle you can see up above the hotel. Up through the narrow cobbled little streets that go up to the Castle. Plus back after you have been around the castle... More

It's so cheap (especially if you have a public transit card) and I think the experience of riding in tram which is almost 100 years old is one in a life time! Good way to see the center of the city all in 40min ;). Don't get this mixed up with the tram tour.

We unknowingly got the 28 to Estrella which was just a tram ride and fairly quiet. However, seeing the tram on other days, going the other way I wouldn't bother. The drivers let the tourists pack on like sardines and it doesn't look comfy. Also buy your tickets using the metro card viagem as you can get on any tram... More

We waited for one whole hour to get on this supposedly "not-to-miss" tram ride. Waste of time. When we finally got on, we were packed in like sardines. We had a baby to boot, so the three of us besides being very uncomfortable, couldn't see anything - couldn't turn or move at all - and felt stifled. Skip the tram... More

We had a such a great time riding Tram 28 around the small streets of Lisbon. We rode to the end of the line twice just for fun! We got our rides with the price of a 1-day metro ticket so it didn't cost us anything extra!! A great way to get up to the castle!

We had been expecting great things from this tram but found it crowded and erratic in timings. Quite long queues waiting for the trams and then standing room only. Also, the drivers were less than enthusiastic and seemed to ignore the fact they were there to serve their passengers and on occasions failing to let them alight before closing doors... More

A fun and quirky way to see the real people and city. It gets crowded so take a taxi to the start point and get off at st George's castle for the best experience...then head on up to tour the castle. Not for people who don't like crowds...but if you have ridden the subway in ny, Paris, Washington, D.C. Etc... More

The trip in tram 28 is worth doing it! Tip: get on at the western first stop to ensure that you get a window seat and get off near the castle - there is a wonderful viewpoint. The rest of the trip is not a must and very crowded. Our child also loved this trip - it was one of... More

We rode the tram all the way around on it's route. You see beautiful tiled homes in the old part of the area. If it's busy, hop off at the castle and walk down.
