The older Trams and Funiculars are part of the Lisbon scene and if visiting must be travelled on. The interiors are lovely with highly polished dark wood, however with trams 12 and 28 they are sometimes so busy that its impossible to appreciate this aspect!

We took the Gloria Funicular (located across Hard Rock Cafe) on Avenida da Liberdade and checked out the view of Lisbon. It was so magical! We had a lovely dinner at one of the local restaurants.

With the card Lisboa in hand, we proceeded to investigate the city. We had an awesome time using the new and old trams (Interestingly enough the lovely historic trams were actually constructed in England). We downloaded the routes and timetables, and traveled to all the attractions on the 15e, 12e and the famous 28e. The one negative is it took... More

Get a Lisboa card and explore the city on both the modern trams, the ancient trams (often crush-loaded, even out of season) and the underground network. Kids riding on the outside of the old tram was a great counter to the health and safety conscious world that they were oblivious to. Oh to be 10 again!

After a full day of walking, exploring Lisbon, we were ready for a ride in one of the old Trams to find our restaurant for dinner. Very well maintained, other passengers were friendly. Reasonable cost. Great mode of transportation to avoid walking the hills in Lisbon. We were fortunate that the stop was very near our hotel....this became our favorite... More

A short break (3 days) in Lisbon gave me the opportunity to get away from the constant rain in UK. A professional guide was on hand which proved to be essential. I saw the tram illustrated, briefly one evening hurrying back to its depot. My trip was in the Autumn of 2015

Tram 28 is famous but the funiculars in Lisbon work very well indeed. Although all seem to be smothered in graffiti on the outside it is a good - and fun - way to negotiate some of Lisbon's steeper hills

We tried both tram 28 and tram 12 to travel around the centre of the town. Great to travel in old trams which were much better than the newer tram 15 to Belem. Lots of character. If you get the 24hr Carris pass you can ride around all day.

These are both old time ways to travel around the hills in Lisbon. waits can be long but the scenery is great. We enjoyed all the neighborhoods we were able to see. If it weren't for the lines, I'd rate them a 5.

Thank RandyM13505

Staying in Chiado & Carmo

Neighborhood Profile
Chiado & Carmo
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally, "squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used to. You can also enjoy breathtaking views of Lisbon from the Elevador de Santa Justa or the Carmo Convent, for example. A commercial neighborhood at its core, especially for its Garrett and Carmo streets, Chiado is to this day a mandatory visit in Lisbon.
