We queued for the start of the journey in the mid day heat for about 20 minutes and we were still nowhere near the start of the queue. We would have been there for about another 20 minutes before getting on the tram. That is a seriously bad service.

The train ride is an option to take a ride around town in an "historic" tram. Talked to quite a few locals that all said it is okay, but there is various alternatives and you can enjoy city views on foot as well or with other tour operaters. The tram is often completely overcrowded and we were warned by about... More

Never forget that this 'used' to be a public transportation used by locals. No round trips! Some brave people still use it to get home or to work. For a spacious touristic ride book look for the touristic tours (red trams). History on tracks.

We bought a 24hr viva viagem (metro) card for 6€ which is excellent value. We used the 28 tram to see parts of Lisbon. They do get packed and crammed so beware but if you get a seat it's a great cheap way to see Lisbon

Despite all kind of opinions, maybe exagerating a little bit, it is the same then traveling to Rome and forgetting the Pope and Vatican. The tram 28 is an iconic tour in the city, in Summer with all the windows open is quite enjoyable. This days we hade between 32 and 36º C and taking a ride with all the... More

We waited for 2 hours in line and it never arrived. The line was already a mile long. My little son was getting restless. We had to leave the long line after being there for 2 wasted hours .

Don't leave Lisboa without taking tram 28. Can't be described - must be experienced. If you don't want to queue and don't mind standing, walk to the next stop and board there. There is always space, as most of those who have queued 40 min don't mind waiting 5 min extra for the next tram to have a seat.

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"!
