“Spot the pickpocket!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

I rode this tram to and from the castle and groups of young men were repeatedly jumping on, walking through the car, and getting off at the next stop. The same groups did this on the way up and down. The tram is 90% tourists so the haul must rack up through the day.

The narrow streets were interesting to ride through though, just a shame you can't relax and enjoy the ride.

“A must do in Lisbon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

For the price of a tram ticket you can travel in one of the old fashioned Lisbon trams passing through all the historic areas of the capital. Very enjoyable.

“A Trip with the Electrico 28 is a Must !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Visiting Lisbon, you should not miss a trip with the famous Tram Nr. 28. Starting from the center of town ( P.L.do Camoes), you should go west to visit the Cemiterio dos Prazeres ( the most impressive cemetery, I ever visited). From Prazeres, the tram takes you across the city along most attractions of Lisbon to the other side of town to Graca. On your way, you pass the basilica of Estrela, the Bairo Alto, the Chiado, the Baixa, and the Castelo de Sao Jorge.

“Quaint and unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Sightseeing in a different way with Tram 28. Starting near Martim Moniz Metro station, the tran runs through narrow and tiny streets, passing old and grand buildings. This is probably the easiest way to discover hilly streets of Lisbon
