“exciting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

Take people's word for it: riding the tram is thrilling. It's the best way to see parts of the city and to chat with local people and fellow travellers. Don't miss it.

“Hard to get a seat but good fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

A real bone shaker but great fun, runs up and down some very steep streets. Relatively expensive for public transport at almost 4 euros each one way, worth buying a pass if in Lisbon for a few days but we only needed to use tram 28 once. Worth it fo the experience.

“Must try on your list”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

When you are in Lisbon you need to take tram 28 to see the Alfama - the tram is quite old fashioned but very nice. The way from the first to last station takes about 30 minutes. It is a very nice way of seeing the city.

“Unable to understand what was good??”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

The tram is extremely overcrowded. We had to wait 45 minutes to get into one . It was a Monday and I was told that it was probably one of the quitest days. It is completely impossible to get inside the tram with a child. The only problem is that this is the only tram which goes to certain locations so you are forced to take it. The neighbourhood looked nice but I would probably walk it than get stuffed in this tram

“Great way to see the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

I believe Lisbon has one of the best public transportation systems. The Metro, trams, funiculars and elevator are all in one system covered by a single ticket. As others have pointed out, it can be difficult getting on board. If you have patience and are lucky enough to get a window seat then you'll have a unique opportunity to see some of the interesting neighborhoods that Lisbon has to offer. If getting on board the 28 is too difficult catch one of the other lines and just ride. You will either find something that prompts you to get off or you can continue the ride back to your point of embarkation.
