This is really cheap to take up to the Barrio Alto where there are many good restaurants and bars. You have beautiful views all over the city from here. You must pay to go up and come down.

crammed hot trams, really slow to get from A to B, impossible to use as a "sight seeing" hop on and off as recommended in the guide books, as too crowded to see out, or even get on half the time. Expensive, especially without a 3 day ticket. The funicular stretches are really pointless. We resorted to taxis in the... More

We decided to use all modes of transport as we had a ticket for everything worth looking on expedia before you travel. It was good like going back in time and useful to get from lower Lisbon to the top.

Riding these antique trams is a must when visiting Lisbon; from the Alfama till the Monasterio de Jeronimos; you can really see some of the major attractions while riding the tram. Be aware that these trams are mostly VERY crowded with tourists but also with pick-pockets ! Watch your valuables!

Great way to get about the city quickly and cheaply. 6 Euros plus 50c for a rechargeable ticket that lasts 24 hours. Keep the receipt for your rechargeable card. In case the card doesn`t work you will need to produce the receipt, hotels sell tickets but don`t offer receipts.

A fun activity in Lisbon is to try the old-time trams and funiculars found around the city. These are enjoyable forums of local public transportation that are worth experiencing during stays in the city. Tram No. 28 is a popular route for those wanting to make way to the Alfama district of Lisbon from central locations near to Rossio. You... More

Transport in Lisbon is cheap with a card, which you zap at the station or other places to load it with the money you need. There are many trams - convenient, But they are sometimes over full. One tram driver very helpful, another rude and bad tempered.

Buy a 50c green card and load it, like a London Oyster card. It can be used on the metro, bus, mainline trains, and trams and funiculars. Incredibly cheap compared to the UK, an especially London.

The trams and elevadors in Lisbon are a sight you do not get to see in many places. They are special just because they are so old and still do the job of taking you from here to there in this hilly city. That is if you get to hop in - they are really crowded during the day as... More
