We took the this tram from the cathedral and went all the way to the last stop,visited that area and took the tram back to continue our sightseeing on view top and the castle. It's best to catch this tram in the morning as later on during the day the queues are long and hardly any seats. Since the tram... More

It is a cheap way to see how the city looks like as the daily metro / bus ticket can be used. However, it moves very slowly and takes 40 minutes to complete the route. If you have already been to a few places like Sao Jorge castle and the riverside, and you run out of time having to choose... More

Take the old #28 Tram from Praca Martim Moniz. It takes you through the most scenic areas of Lisbon. Well worth the ride.

This is one of the "must-do" things in Lisbon as there are very few places in the world that one can travel on tram cars as old as these, on a regular scheduled service. It pays to catch an early or late tram if possible, from one end of the route or the other as the trams soon fill up... More

Overcrowded, noisy, uncomfortable and prone to pickpockets. These trams may look nice and nostalgic in the brochures and trip booklets but reality is that they are rubbish! Too uncomfortable and crowded to enjoy the different parts of the city and no audio information to support. Much better to pay for a tourist bus to see the city.

The old trams are fun but there are hardly any seats so try to go on them at a quieter time in the day. Also, a single ticket costs €2.95 but if you buy a ticket from the Metro for all day travel on metro, tram and bus it is much better value - about €5.90

One must go on this traditional form of transport. The trams will take you into the old parts of this city where the buses can't go because some of the streets are so narrow. Try it out you will be whisked back in time!

We took the tram from last stop. It was raining and very busy but the narrow streets it passed though were so pretty. I'd imagine it is stunning on a nice day.

This is great tram to take. Old-fashioned yellow wooden tram starts before the Alfama and crosses Lisbon on a westerly direction through impossibly narrow streets Its always full of tourists so try to get a seat or else go down the back if you want to see. Stay on to the end and explore the lovely graveyard at the terminus.... More

Watch your wallets and your backpacks. We were warned they recognize tourists by the clothes and as in any major city use caution. Most Lisbons are friendly and honest. Just be smart.

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"!
