kind of a must

it's ok. it's a tram. it's overrated. once you've seen one of them from the inside, you've seen them all. It's a part of Lisbon though, so you have to do it!

You must go on a tram whilst in Lisbon it's a great experience. Get a 24 hour pass for only €6.50 from a kiosk. Can be used on all buses and the Metro.

Tram 28 is a nice public transport, when not a turistic one, when you have a guide and some entertainments. It takes you both the old parts of Lisbon, some of the seven hills Lisbon has. The trip is most trilling after Chiado descending the Calçado do Combro and entering the narrow lanes. Then you have the Parlament on your... More

Had a great time riding through the streets of Lisbon on tram 28! Very easy with the Viva card. Friendly driver, great photo ops!

This tram is a bit overrated. Let me tell you why-- 1. There are not a lot of trams, so you have to wait in a long line (45 min) to get on one, unless you are taking it early in the morning or at end the of the day. Also, the amount of people makes the tram a bit... More

We planned a circuit of Tram 28 but halfway had to get off and back on again. Then for some reason which we never found out about it stopped for 1 hour. Did not see anything interesting from this tram, suggest you only take trams to where you want to get to and to consider walking if they are full.

Definitely a 'must do' when in Lisbon. The tram 28 is a not to be forgotten experience as it travels up the hills and round the narrow streets towards the Alfama district. It might mean waiting in a queue for a while, but it is worth it, and in any case the trams are fairly frequent. If I return to... More

We already heard about the pickpockets being a problem on this tram so we were even extra careful. My girlfriend had put her iPhone within a pocket on the inside of her jacket thinking it would be safe. She was even sitting down - on the Isle seat. After we got off at the last station she went to grab... More

It is authentic and it is affordable! A wonderful way to orientate yourself - if I had had more time I would have jumped on and off over a couple of days. You really get a feel for the narrow streets and the central areas of Lisbon. There was a good mix of locals and tourists in March although I... More

The tram winds through narrow streets and allows you to see things at a good pace, and get on and off at leisure. I am so glad it was not scrapped when this was a possibility. It has been our main method of transport in Lisbon.
