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

Aerobus from Lisbon airport into city, including stops at main train stations, costs 3.50 Euros and very efficient. When we travelled this also gave you a 25% discount on tickets for the Yellow Bus Tours (not necessary to use on same day as the Aerobus) which is a great discount especially when Yellow Bus Tour tickets also include all other...

And I'm glad I took the funicular from Baixa. I would NEVER have made it up that hill. What on earth did they do in the olden days? It's just for the experience and it opens up the possibility of seeing a different part of Lisbon.

Travelled on the funicular at Ave de Gloria. It was a short ride but a great experience for my kids! Cost €3.60 for each child but was inclusive on the yellow bus ticket for us adults! I tell you what - I walked the hill afterwards - wow! They needed that funicular! Very steep. Great views / gardens at the... More

Was only in Lisbon for a day during a cruise and we booked a tram tour as our shore excursion. Of the 3.5 hours touring Lisbon, over an hour was on two of Lisbon's most famous small yellow and white 'Remodelado' trams. Our guides took us through the city over various routes and we saw a lot of Lisbon! We... More

My wife and I stayed in Alfama in an apartment, and so we rode Tram 28 a lot to get around. But we also rode Tram 15 a couple of times, to go out to Belem, and also to go to the Ancient Art Museum (in the Santos neighborhood I guess). The Tram 15 is more like a bus, in... More
