Went the whole way on this tram. Fun riding through very narrow streets. However Nothing of great interest on last stop. Expect long wait.

Feel like a kid on this roller coaster trolley ride. One suggestion is to ride this trolley in the evening when it is not as crowded and the temperature is cooler. By far, this is the most enjoyable way to see some neighborhoods of Lisbon, besides walking the streets.

A quaint way to get around Lisbon or part of it. They are usually very crowded but you can get on and off where you want too.

A lot of people waiting (and it was mid of September), a lot of time spending in the station, very crowded tram and not very happy with what I get. It is better to go by foot and see what you want instead of going by tram. Nothing interesting but the great hills and narrow streets.

If you are lucky or ready to go really early or late, you are in for a treat, otherwise it's always packed full of sweaty tourists like myself (no air conditioning, mind you )

We saw tram 28 several times during our stay, but every time it was too crowded, so we didn't ride it.

You need to choose your time carefully or you will be in a long queue. Best time is first thing in the morning. There are very few seats so you will most likely be standing. Scenery is fantastic. Watch your bags and wallets. Pickpockets love the crowds.

This was a magical trip. We were fortunate enough to have a seat directly behind the young male tram driver and I made a point of watching his every move, trying to glean how the controls worked. After two and a bit hours I still had absolutely not the first idea! The scenery is absolutely stunning from this tram and... More

We took this tram partly because we though it would be faster than walking and wanted the experience of riding on the tram. Walking was better and more comfortable. We used it in early to mid afternoon and it was unbelievably crowded. Standing room only, not a pleasant experience. It is much better to take photos from outside than to... More

We loved watching Tram 28 go bye sometimes full to the front window with people.We followed the tracks for hours before riding it to get the riders viewpoint at bargain price.

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"!
