We heeded previous reviews and stood at the very back. That made it worthwhile. Good experience apart from an older man being pick pocketed. I wish the criminals could have seen... read more

The queue to join No 28 was huge & after losing 6€ we decided to take a TUC TUC on the same route around the old town taking 1 hour & costing 50€. The buses No 28 we saw were crammed full of people standing like sardines - so this old tram No28 is charming but not practical .

Even in February this tram is extremely busy. We enjoyed the experience but as it was the nearest mode of transport to our apartment we used it all the time and sometimes it didn't stop as there are so many people aboard. Everyone should however try to experience it

Assuming you can get on a 28 tram (it can get very crowded), watch out for pickpockets: we saw one guy cover a hand with a folded jacket and sidle up behind other passengers, clearly seeking opportunities to dip into pockets and bags. I stared him out and he got off at the next stop, no doubt to try again...

Buy an 8Euro 24 hours ticket and you can use this on the tram 29, normal trams , busses and metro. Great way to travel and experience the city

You can´t leave Lisbon without taking a tram. In you take Tram 28, you´ll be able to see many tourist locations (Baixa, Alfama, Cathedral, Chiado, Bairro Alto...). It would be better if you could take it at first time in the morning, so that you can sit and enjoy the travel (afterwards, there are lots of tourists waiting for it).... More

We heeded previous reviews and stood at the very back. That made it worthwhile. Good experience apart from an older man being pick pocketed. I wish the criminals could have seen his distress and that of his wife.

We started from Martim Moniz Square tram stop, the first one . It is a chance to get sitting, the time of the ride is over one hour. Tram ride is a good idea to know better old part of the city, narrow streets, citizens, views. Amospheare of the past, retro. We finished on last stop in front of old... More

We were in Lisbon in September 2015 on a cruise and missed this tram ride as it was so crowded we couldn't get on. So it was first on our list when we returned in February 17. We weren't disappointed as we managed to get seats and have the ride of our life. A mix of great buildings, narrow streets... More

Excellent, we travelled through the narrow streets in Lisbon able to stop off at various destinations along the way. Views were excellent as we climbed quite high.

We bought a Carris pass for 6€ which was valid for buses, the metro and this marvellous tram ride. We sat by the open window and gasped at the steep rise and magnificent sites along the route. We stopped about half way for coffee and pasteis del natals with a fantastic view of Lisbon. Great to see that locals manage... 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"!
