Unless you're close to the terminal stops don't bother, you won't get on and you'll end up wasting your time waiting for a tram that never comes Perhaps tour experience may vary if you're trying anything other that Saturday in August (my bad) Instead. Just walk. It's not that long a walk and you'll see much more. Caveat that it's... More

Crowded, not on time, shaking all directions, expensive and windy in the summer. That all is a must have to experience in Lisbon. The tram is a super adventure and seeing the city from it is e really stunning experience. Remember to buy a ticket in a kiosk, cause the one that you are getting inside is more expensive and...

But for the long wait for the tramcar to come , the tram ride itself , through narrow romantic winding streets of the old town was quite fetching , as was the view of the city from the top . The ride maybe a little overhyped , but it's fun and one must do it if in Lisbon.

Went for a month to visit Lisbon and the area near it. Lisbon is a very nice city, quite unique, really love it! The old district Alfama is very picturesque, with its narrow little roads! The trip on the tram 28 is an experience I would definitely recommend! just wait for one which is not too crowded if u want... More

You haven't done Lisbon if you don't do this, even if its just a tourist thing it's give you an insight in the old Lisbon. Just take it from one side to the other and kill a bit of time while you are getting s little "tour". ( a little bumpy just so you know, pictures are hard to get... More

The best way to enjoy it is to sit down next to a window, open it and feel the kind of roller coaster adventure. To do so, it's better to catch your tram before 8am, at least in the Summer. The best itinerary is between the Barrio (rua do Loreto for instance) and Martin Moniz. On the way back, you... More

Very handy way to get around. Purchase a day ticket and look for the yellow team 28 signs. The downside of the Trams - often crowded, watch out for pickpockets (police pulled one off a tram we were on) and you have to wait for them to arrive and often line up. Don't let this put you off, just be... More

Tram 28 is one of the oldest trams in the city. The best thing about this tram is that it takes you all around the city for a few euro's. It is a great way to see a lot of the city during a short stay. Make sure you arrive early because this tram is often fully occupied!

This is a fabulous way to see the city. Buy a day pass (bilhete diario) for around $6 so you can get on and off the tram or any public transportation all day long. Also, you can buy the 72 hour pass for around $11. Sometimes the tram gets very crowded. Go to the back of the tram once you... 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"!
