    Lisbon's famous trams

    The subway system is pretty good here but you'll want to take the trams, or electricos, at least once.

    This is one of the typical way to discover the town! The tram number 28 is the one that makes you see all the nicest parts of Lisbon without getting tired!

    a tram

    You can enter Lisbon by ship, airplane, car, bus or train.
    The best public transport s the tram. Breathtaking how this tram moves up the steep hills. Must have a strong engine!

    Tram 28 !

    Tram 28

    Take tram 28 for a trip around the city. It gives you a nice overview about what this city has to offer.
    The ride starts at the Prazeres cemetery and goes up to the Alfama quarter.

    In Praco do Comercio, you can catch this easy to spot, red Sightseeing Tram. I'm not sure where it goes, but there's a tourist information office here where you could inquire about it.

    Hitching a Ride

    Although a lot of kids in Lisbon seem to like "Hitching a Ride" on the trams we found day passes great. We hopped on and off at will and really saw a lot of the city.

    When in Lisbon do as the locals do - take the tram. Its cheap and efficient, just make sure you've got a head for heights as some of the roads can be very steep!

    To go to Alfama Quarter: trams 12 and 28 (from Baixa) or bus number 37
    To go to Baixa Quarter: Metro Rossio Station. Use 'Circuito Turístico' in 'Colinas de Lisboa'

    There are modern trams as well, but these old carriages are still in use, not only as a tourist attraction, but also on some steep tracs with many curves where new carriages can not be run.

    To get around Lisbon the best way is, definetly, the subway, but if you'd like a panoramic tour you can always take a tram. Their quite nice but already a little old.
