Tram was easily accessible and frequent. Driver was helpful to all and indicated when people had asked at which stop to alight. The journey by tram was much better than taxi, as you had time to admire scenery and were higher up for better views.

Highlight of Lisbon for me. Purchase a ticket on metro for €1.40 rather than on board which costs more than double. We went midday and it was quiet so no problem with pick pockets.

While very crowded, it's a fun way to see part of the city. Get on at the Rossio stop. Otherwise, it's pretty hard to find a seat or even standing space.

We rode this 2x to try to get the experience that others had gotten. We also started at the very first stop (Martim Moniz) to try to get a seat. So if you're standing in the proper queue and many other tourists are doing the same, there are others who come around from the top of the line to squeeze... More

This is a convenient way to travel around the city and a 24 hour pass makes travelling cheap. Try to travel before 9 in the morning as it is very crowded for the rest of the day.

Visit Lissabon and use the 28! This is amazing. My wife and I are born in Amsterdam with à lot of narrow streats. What seems to be impossible is possible in Lissabon. The streats are almost narrower than the width of th tram. Nice opportunity to have an idea of the old city center. You must use this line!

We tried waiting for this this weekdays and weekends and usually ended up either walking or getting other transport. When you did get on, unlike anywhere else in Lisbon, you had to watch for pickpockets. I'd say to others to best avoid; great for material for fridge-magnets and tiles but not for the actual pleasure of transportation around a lovely... More

I grew up in London and rode trams like the ones in Lisabon. Before the war my uncle was a tram driver and his wife the conductress in his tram, what a combination! Riding the old unique trams in Lisabon brought back memories of the old times, at the same time gave me a great deal of satisfaction that something... More

Getting on the 28 tram makes you feel in the past centuries. The tram is a useful mean of transportation and can leave you up next to castelo de São jorge. While getting to your destination you can experiente the view of numerous points of interests and observe local costumes. Most importante if you buy the $6 euro -24hour transportation... More
