I thoroughly enjoyed travelling around by tram and funicular. Some things worth knowing: 1) Don't buy tickets on board. The tickets sold for cash on board are basically tourist traps - you pay a lot extra. 2) Instead, buy a smart card from any Metro machine. There is a 50 cent charge for the card, and you then pre-load it... More

14 euros for 4 people to climb a small hill and driver was rude and only spoke portuguese... complete waste of time and money. Avoid

t's well worth spending 6 Euros on the 24 hour ticket that allows tram,funicular, metro and bus travel. Hop on/off whenever the mood takes you..Tram 28 departs from Largo Maritim Moniz and goes to Alfama and the Castle Sao Joerge returning on circular route. Lisbon is really really hilly and this will save your legs and it is fun. Tram... More

We enjoyed our tour of Lisbon by foot and funicular but while the tour said we'd be walking about 1 and 1/2 miles, it seemed more like 3-4 miles...mostly uphill! That being said, riding the funicular to the upper part of the city was fun and offered great vistas of this very interesting city. We were able to see one... More

We were amazed at just how many hills Lisbon is built on. Best possible way to see the City if on a short break is by open top hop on hop off bus, tickets valid for 48 hours. A must is to use these tickets for rides on the Hill Trams to see narrow streets on the way up to... More

We used the tram network to save our legs whilst exploring Lisboa. Get your tickets for trams, buses & metro from specialised outlets before boarding. We also bought tour on the 'Red Tram' that took 1.5 hrs without getting off-one can hop on-off if required for more sightseeing. It was a great way of seeing neighbourhoods that we would not...

Be aware that you can purchase the wrong pass for travel in Lisbon ! We got one from the upstairs machines at Cais do sodre and it was a train pass only !

First buy the integrated city travel ticket. The funiculars are life and leg savers. They are also great photo opportunities. Amazing pieces of Victorian engineering preserved and functional in a modern context. The trams beat the tuk-tuks on price and bone-shaking. But both are fun. Go early and try to get a seat by one of the open windows. As... More
