Although this is the classic old "tourist" tram it is part of the normal transport system. Don't pay the 2.80 euro single trip charge, go to a metro station, get a 50 cent green ticket and put the 6.15 euro day ticket. You can use it as many times as you like for 24 hours on all the trams, busses... More

Tram 28 goes through some fun areas and runs quite often, but it's really about the novelty of riding trams in Lisbon. They are very old, usually have cool graffiti on them, and are an easy way to see different neighborhoods and get up hills.

I spent an entire hour at the tram, from Basilica da Estrela to Catedral da Sé. It was amusing, interesting, beautiful and absolutely perfect for people watching and for picking up Portuguese language expressions. Highly recommended attraction!

The trams are a great way to see lisboa, especially the tight and narrow streets of barrio alta, it is a wonder the tram manages to squeeze through! If you have been walking for ages, its a nice relaxing way to get a feel for the whole place. Obviously with the throng of tourists they can get a little busy... More

You haven't really visited Lisbon until you've been jostled about in a vintage tram. Plan to ride early in the day, when the crowds are less pressing -- it can get claustrophobic at times. Get a window, especially for the ride down the hill. It's a blast!

This is a must for a Lisbon visit. The timetable is non existant and they can be very crammed but its a great way to see the city. We bought a 24 hr ticket which covered trams, buses and elevators. Very cheap.

I was very much looking forward to our journey on Tram 28 but was a bit disappointed - not so much because of the half-hour wait but it was very crowded and therefore difficult to see what you were passing by. It was amazing how close the Tram came to parked or driven cars and walls of buildings on the... More

This is an unusual way to see the city! Interesting and exciting. Get in at the first stop to get a seat in the tram and get lost driving in this historic tram (uphill!!)

I've never ridden in one of these old trams, so it was a cool experience for a one time thing. Lisbon is very hilly so it does save some time to get from one place to another and experience it in an old-fashioned way. I was in January so there were not many people in the tram, which was ok....

This is classic, old-timey Lisbon. It will take you through all the main tourist areas. It's probably not the most efficient way to get around the city, but it's certainly fun.

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighbourhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
