“Practical and not 'touristy'”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Good way to get around -- just be sure to buy tickets in advance at one of the kiosks -- much cheaper.

“Excellent but beware of pickpockets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Great to feel the real mood of the city. There are at least 2 great routes where you will find the old city gems. Buy a ticket before boarding or you will pay double. Beware of pickpockets that are probably on every tram (not kidding) but don't miss it.

“Very interesting experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

People say you have to take a ride being in Lisbon.And they are right.We have tried tram nr 12 and 28.Stop is just at Rosso metro station.If you will buy 24h ticket for metro and buses than it includes also trams.

“Lisbon details pass like a breeze at your eyes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

You shouold try at least one of the trams in Lisbon.

A lovely way to let you relax and feel the city without stress.
At your eyes, when in a funicular, you have antique wall details at a no distance, texturized walls with its crackled painting, witnessing the passing time, the faded colours that make Lisbon a wonderful patchwork of tonalities, will amaze you.
You feel like climbing to the sky and let the city at yuor feet ....a nice sensation
