Tram 28 is really a "must" when you visit Lisbon. It takes you to the most emblematic places in Lisbon and it is a very cheap form of transportation. Most people have probably heard about it being a "dangerous" ride, but it is not really like that. Like any other crowed places, you just have to be careful with pickpockets.... More

Great experience travelling around the back streets of Lisbon with the locals. Just like the San Francisco ones except you can't hang on to the sides ( you'll hit some of the shops/ houses if you could)

This is a nice way to see some of the best attractions of the old city of Lisbon! The 28 goes from Campo Ourique to Martim Moniz.

This little tram is so cute and the route through narrow streets and up and down hills is fun. It can definitely be crowded and it is worth waiting for the next one to come along. We used our 24 hour metro pass on our rides.

Useful to get to the castle and see other areas but nothing special. Busy so can see why it's an area for pickpockets.

This tram gets packed at all times of the year and day. It takes you to the castle and then you can get back to where you started. As it gets packed all the time beware of the pickpockets there are notices displayed inside the tram warning of pickpockets.

Got onto this tram a little outside st George Castle and enjoyed my ride all the way through. It goes through winding roads and passes through the downtown and good sightseeing tram. I went in the evening at around 7.30 pm and got a seat at the front of the tram which surprisingly was not crowded at all. Its too... More

I can't believe the number of tourists in Lisbon and they all want to get on this tram. We did manage to get on once - standing room only - but it broke down after 2 stops . It looks very picturesque from the outside though.

We queued for this trying for some time and when we got on it was absolutely packed and we had to stand. Not good for the 70+. Then some people got on at a stop who pickpocketed one of us. Fortunately we detected this and got the money back, but the pickpocket escaped. The trams are a real feature of... More

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighborhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
