Amazing must try

This is an amazing train, it is the oldest I have ever ride. Looks scary but very funny. One can reach to almost all touristic place the tram.

Fantastic journey up and down narrow streets of Lisbon, great way to get bearings of such a great city, we used route 28, which goes past se de Lisbon church and Castillo Sao Jorge towards the alfama district of Lisbon with its narrow streets.

Lisbon has many steep hills and the climbing is facilitated by a network of yellow trams, funiculars and elevators. They are old and it is amazing that they still work and manage to transport locals and tourist. Often covered with graffiti seeing them climbing narrow and steep streets is unforgettable and worth a picture.

Iconic. All enthusiasts make regular pilgrimages to experience transport from a bygone age. Route 28 is a must do. The re-instatement this year of first a tourist service up to Princip Real to hopefully be followed by Route 24 coming back into being is great.

The yellow trams are definitely a great way to discover the city of Lisboa. We walked up the winding streets to the castle and got to see some fantastic sights along the way - afterwards we were able to hop on to the tram and explored the city from the comfort of a seat! The tram took us down some... More

The discovery of Lisbon would not be complete without a ride on its extensive network of tram. While they lead to many parts of the city, the most enjoyable is the one going up to alto barrio, when the train circulates between the narrow streets... Those can get very busy so if you have to stand up, beware of your... More

tram 28 is the touristy one, ergo also the main one for pickpockets, so be careful in that respect. It takes you zooming through the city by alot of major sites, so keep the camera ready to snap happy.

Jump on one of the tram or railway to see Lisboa. And if you are tired from the walking just choose one, anyone, and discover the hidden and not so well known ares!

there's no better way to explore the city than taking the trams that the locals use on a daily base. stay away from them at rush hour as it can be very uncomfortable to be squeezed in a crowded car. be aware of pickpockets
