Using the 28 tram is one of the best ways to visit Lisbon, but make sure that you buy the ticket in one of the official offices - a rechargable card called "7 colinas" or "viva viagem" - because is much cheaper than inside the tram. The tram crosses most of the touristic points of the city!

You cannot visit Lisabon without trying Tram 28. It is an absolute must! It is not only a great way to see this part of the city, but also a convenient transport.

Uniqu, lovely, romantic. It is so great to step back to a door-side, while the tram is coming throuhg a very narrow street. It is a must in Lisbon.

I live in Lisbon and I love travelling around on the tram. It is such a lovely ride but only if you get to sit down and it is not packed. Unfortunately the tram is often crowded which takes the joy out of travelling on these iconic modes of transport. It always pays to buy a travel card before boarding... More

We took Tram 28 to go up to St. Jorge's castle. We got on right in front of our hotel - Mundial. I was a nervous wreck the whole time because the hills were steep and the roads were narrow. I wasn't sure the little tram would make it all the way up, but it surely did. No AC but... More

It is a very romantic tour in the hearth of Lisboa. The yellow bus remember me the Cable Car that is in San Francisco (USA), both are nice, romantic and thinks that are important to preserve!

For less than 3 Euros, you can take one of the most famous trams in Portugal, the # 28. The #28 goes up and links the hills of Lisbon. Try to get on early as its packed and crowded. The one thing that they would do is announce the stops so you know where to get off. Other than that,... 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"!
