When you are tired of walking :-)

Perfect to take this old tram down to Lisbon centre when you have been in Bairro Alto and are tired in your legs after a long walk upwards!

there are few funiculares in Lisboa, one is example takes you from avenida da liberdade to barrio alto (several nice restaurants). quite typical you have to take a ride if you are around. tip: buy a full day pubblic transport ticket (about 6 euro) and you can move in Lisboa for 24 hours on bus, subway and some funicular.

If you purchase a day pass for public transport all trams are included. These cost under 9 Euro per person and are good value as each trip can cost 5 Euro. Tram 12 to the Castle goes up extremely steep slopes and narrow streets but is an experience itself. Be warned that locals jump queues and trams can be over... More

You really get the true feel of the city by using the trams to get around and marvelling at how they get through some of the streets. You really to get see some real experiences of Lisbon. Also the tickets are well priced if you get a 24 hour travel ticket which you can also use on all travel.

I took the tram a couple of times when I was in Lisbon, it is a popular way of travelling for locals and tourists. Must do when you are in Lisbon.

We did this 1.5hour tram ride around the city and the headphones were good to give a broad understanding of the different neighborhoods in the city. I enjoyed a break from all the walking we did and it was worth paying the money to get a seat. The 28 tram was always so packed and this one was relaxing.

They need to have more transit options to get to Belem. They hype the tram and it runs relatively infrequently (ever 18 minutes or so at peak) and the ride is very hot and crowded. I think there are other options one can explore via train or other buses. I would recommend trying something else.

In high season it may take a while before you can enter but the Santa Justa elevator is worth waiting for. A lovely view at the exit and a new part of Lisbon to discover. We went downhill with the Ascensor da Gloria; recommended!

Not sure I would do again, but glad I did it once. Not really worth the wait or the crowd. But...it certainly beats walking up the hill!

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.
