Well worth the wait to ride on the old trams. Great views on the 28 up to the Se and the Castle. Plus NB .... 15 to Belem are newer, quicker and two large cars long making it a quick trip!

Lisbon has three working street funiculars and one street elevator which allow its citizens and visitors to move to and from its hilly districts more easily(The Lavra Funicular,The Glória Funicular and The Bica Funicular) Lisbon is a hilly city and cobblestone streets abound, thus “electricos” (trams) and “ascensores” (funiculars) help to get people around, especially up and down hills!

Went to Lisbon on a cruise ship day trip excursion. A ride on the old trams is a must. We took a guided tour. Very good explanation Well worth the visit.

I took the no 12 yesterday. It's a nice, ambient and rather crowded way of getting a look at parts of the city. If you don't enjoy queuing in the sun (and like discounts) I suggest you get a normal traveling card and jump on on one of the stops before Martim moniz and grab the best seats as everyone... More

The trams are easy to understand and a great way to get around to the corners of the city. The Funicular.....was disappointing. Nothing but graffiti on the car itself and the walls on the way up. I've been on many funiculars and this was a shame. They either need to stop promoting it to tourists and let it be or... More

We used these to go over the many hills in Lisbon. The trams were a good way to see the city of Lisbon as well and they were very charming. They really give you the feeling of traveling via a vintage experience. It was nice to be able to hop on and off at the various historical sites and in... More

We made use of both Trams 28 and 15 on our recent trip to Lisbon and found them to be the best way to get up and down those pesky hills! They are value for money and a nostalgic way to get about.

Buy the Viagem card for €0.50 at the airport (easy to buy from machines and all in English), top up with €5 or €10 and away you go on the cheapest transport system in Europe. Use on the local trains, trams, buses, metro for a great experience.€1.05 for trip with Viagem Card from Airport to City Centre is ridiculous!! Transport... More
