Fun!

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.

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....

Very nice experience ! Line 28 drives you from braixa to bairro alto where the night start. By your ticket for the day at the subway station its cheaper than directly at the tram.

Great experience, small vintage trams around Lisbom, best way to get to the castle. Crowded, and often visited by pickpockets, but still a must!

The tram are always packed and overcrowded. If you want to take it to see the views, you will very likely be disappointed as you may have to stand all the way. Its also not very comfortable. The rocking and swaying will make you want to hold on to something all the time, if you are standing. There are other... More

The biggest challenge was to long que for this legendary tram ride.We waited for like an hour to get on it.The ride was exciting as it moved pretty close to the buildings with the twists and turn.I enjoyed it but still felt a lil overrated.May be because of the waiting line my expectation was sky high😃.

Strictly for those who love rattling with tens of other strangers, hanging on rickety pols, while the tram is painstakingly making its way up and down the steep hills. Please note, it does NOT do a loop: one leg goes from A to B, the other from B to A. If you want to stand a chance of getting a... 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"!
