Be careful if you plan to go to Belem take the metro and train very nice much better than tram 15 too hot and over crowded and one every 15mins! No place for push chair! In the metro you have elevator everywhere space and less pick pockets!!!

Sadly the tram network is only a shadow of what is was. But what is left is a great way of seeing Lisboa without the effort of slogging uphill. Take the 28 tram to explore the narrow streets of Alfama leading up to what I think is the most beautiful part of Lisbon - Graca and extend out to the... More

There aren't many of these cable cars around anymore. This is a good one to take especially if you are going uphill from the old town Lisbon. If you don't get on first you may find yourself standing up and they cram you in like sardines. It's a very short ride but not something that you can do everyday.

I'd heard about this 28 tram so we decided to give it a go, and my goodness it was worth it. You can use your Metro ticket to get on all trams and buses. Make your way to Martim Moniz on the Green Line. Take L.H. exit and walk down a long park to the end and on the L.H.... More

If you want a fun informative way to see old Lisbon invest 6 Euros and go around on the old trams hop on and off at any of the sites and have a look see

I don't think even a 1day tour of Lisbon would be complete without it, even though it took us a couple of days for our first! Crazy steep hills, and the tram just rattles along! Only athletes and pennypinchers would begrudge this romantic bit of Lisbon!

I liked it, but I wouldn't have had any problem with skipping it. It's crowded with tourists that wants to take a picture/film inside of the tram. If you don't like being shoulder to shoulder with other people and their sweaty bodies, (no air conditioning), then you should skip this. Too overrated!!

Tried to get on but conductor refused to change our 10 euro note claiming no change when there was plenty. Obviously did not want us on as there would not have been room for 2 locals. We were shouted at by both the conductor and 2 people trying to get on. They were so rude and it basically set the... More

It'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.....a fun way to see the city!

We took the tram to Belem. It was very busy even in February, but quite atmospheric and fun. Keep hold of your handbag though, as a few locals were warning people as they got on that pick pocketing is not unusual of he trams.
