OK, so we're in our 60s and we like a bit of nostalgia. The old trams were a major attraction for us on our visit to the city. They didn't disappoint. They are cheap, they are fun - and they must be done! Just do it and take a noisy, shuddering ride in a small box with lots of old... More

You must ride the 28 tram when visiting Lisbon, it's an experience not to be missed. If you aren't lucky enough not to get a seat, the back of the tram has a great view. We bought a one day viva travel card for €6, which covered our 2 tram rides & also the metro & buses.

You can have a great overview of Lisbon by the tram 28. It's a funny ride and a different way to see the city. Be aware that sometimes it get very crowded, but worth the experience. Try to seat by the window and prepare the camera!

Although these trams are extremely popular and therefore very crowded, I still recommend to do it. It is a unique experience and really amazing how the trams ride sometimes just centimeters alongside the houses. Tip: do not stand in the long que at Matrim Moniz station, combine it with a visit to Sao Jorge Castelo. We took the two elevators... More

Historic tram That goes through all the old neighborhoods in Lisbon. Easy access, great price and a bit of history make this team unique. Don't miss it.

The first thing that made an impression to me when walking around the streets of Lisbon was those little antique trams going around. At first I thought they were a cheap attraction but instead they are still used as ways of transportation through the narrow roads on the hills of Lisbon. Some of them are equipped with electronic tourist guides.Really... More

A joyride not to be missed! Though it does shake, rattle and roll a little it's a breath taking experience riding the hilly, narrow streets, especially when Lisboetas leave their cars parked around the next bend. Remember not to stick even a finger out of the widow!

We had to switch trams 3 times on 1 route... No information was given, driver just shouted 'get out!'. Waited for another tram to finish the route, it took us one stop further and then we had to go out again... Finally hopped on a tram again, and were told to 'get off' after 2 stops because the driver needed... More

A trip with the old tram is a must in Lisbon. I have experienced it once before, almost 20 years ago and tried it again. After climbing up to the castle and walking around it is nice to take the tram back to the city centre. But if you are already tired of walking in the city this is the... More

We stayed at The Mundial Hotel in Lisbon - which is very central and on the flat. The Tram 28 stops and starts outside. It takes you up to the Castle you can see up above the hotel. Up through the narrow cobbled little streets that go up to the Castle. Plus back after you have been around the castle... More

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"!
