“Old fashioned beauty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

I would never imagine that one of the most interesting sites of Lisbon would be a public transportation mean. Catch the tram from the starting point preferably early in the morning and take the whole ride. It is realy an enjoyable trip in time. We got a day transportation card which was a good idea because we liked the tram so much that each time it was passing by we poped up. The single ticket of the tram 28 is euro 2.8 whereas the day card costs euro 6.

“A highlight of Lisbon...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

The no. 28 tram is definitely a must-do when visiting Lisbon. We spent a whole day hopping on and off, marvelling at the way these creaking, quaint carriages rumbled up and down the city's steep hills. Our first journey saw us crammed, as other reviewers note, like sardines and we were tempted to give it up as one of those things ruined by the busy season. However, we persisted and many of our other journeys were spent sat by the open windows.

We also found if you take the no. 28 to the terminus (Bairro Alto direction), one driver let us take photos of the empty carriage and even sit in the seat whilst he took a break!

The only downside was the cost. We were advised by tourist information to buy a day ticket on the tram but having got on, found these could be purchased only at Metro stations (the driver on this occasion even grumbled "you should know this!"). As a result, we ended up spending far more than we anticipated on what should be a fairly cheap bit of family-friendly entertainment.

“Only way to up the hill, but packed like sardines with tourists.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

This is a cute little middle of the road tram, and it is the best way to get a view of all the area. But it was packed tight, standing room only at busy times in July. Don't try to drive up, it is difficult and GPS may not get you to the right place (very narrow streets and cobble stones, hills, tough to drive with a stick if you are not experienced).

“Breathtaking views narrow streets”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

Caught the 28 tram but one end of the line to the other. The streets are often only just wide enough for the tramcar only. The windows re all open and people talk and wave. The wooden sets just add to the authenticity of this mode of transport. I was surprised how many locals use this tram to get around town.
