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

The scene was unforgettably impressive; the trams going uphill as it is getting dark just after the sunset. The riding experience was also great; I felt like I were in 100 years ago. It reminded me of the now-defunct tram in my birthplace Kyoto, Japan. It is great that the services are continueing in Lisbon today with remaining historic pieces.

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

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
