A unique aspect of Lisbon are the classic trams that ride through the entire city centre. Tram 28 is most popular, because it passes all the important sights.

Next to that, it also has a few very steep hills in its route, which makes a great ‘Kodak moment’. Downside to this nice way to explore the city, is that it can be incredibly crowded. Loads of tourists gather at the stop, especially during the summer months there will be a huge queue at the stop.

There are chances you’ll end up standing in the isles, barely able to look at the window and stuck underneath a sweaty armpit. If you have plenty of time, you can ride the tram until you have a good seat and take another tour.

Keep in mind that the driver ‘empties’ his tram at a central stop (it was unclear to me where this happened), so you may ride the route in the isle, get a seat and just after that have to leave the tram to start over on a new tram.

The legendary tram 28 is a tourist attraction in itself.

Vintage trams still go from the city centre on sea level, right up through the jumble of streets towards the heights of the Castle of St George. On the way, the tram slices open the city, providing insights into the Lisbon way of life, as well as offering sweeping views back towards the city and out over the Rio Tejo.

These antique style trams make it easy on the legs if you don't feel like trekking the hills :)

Crossing most of the old town, you may enter it at Chiado and it takes you westbound to Sta Catarina (sightseeing), S. Bento (Parliament and PM residence), and Estrela (Church); eastbound to Praca do Comercio (descend at R. Vitor Cordon), the Cathedral, Santa Luzia (sightseeing, and best place to start Alfama visit), the castle of S. Jorge (exit at Lg. Portas do Sol), S. Vicente (church, national pantheon, and thieves market two times a week), and Graca (church).

Don't miss it!

It's a great experience - but actually it goes higher than the castle. When I went on it with a friend, we were surprised at how far we had to come down from iits top point to reach the stop for the castle.
