Tram 28 has scenic route, good chance to see some landmarks, charming streets of Lisbon. When the weather is nice its super crowded. Tram is used mostly by tourists

The tram is old, crowded and offers a bit bumpy ride. It covers most of tourist attractions but you will need to do a bit research before hand, as the driver announces in Portuguese only. Be VERY careful of your belongings, as there are a lot thieves, we witnesses German couples got their wallet stolen, but caught the thief!

Crowded but I've been in worse crowds. Quite interesting to go on up the little roads. Suitable for familes with teenagers maybe not so suitable for younger children due to how busy it was.

Wonderful experience, but it's very important to start your trip at the beginning of the line at the Prazeres Cemetary. We took a taxi to the Cemetary, and then took the tram to the castle.

terrific way to see the great old neighborhoods that are lisbon BUT beware of organized pick pockets who work in groups and snare the unsuspecting in crowded tram cars. you are safe in seats and safe on moderately crowded trams but high risk when jammed. gypsies seem, rightly or wrongly, to attract the blame of locals who seem aware of...

Waited for over an hour and when it finally arrived was a bit of a free for all to get on. You will not see anything If you do not get a seat. If you're not in the first 20 or so in line give it a miss. Advertised as a round trip but it ain't so. At the end... More

I started my day with a ride on Tram 28 which gave me a great orientation of the city as well as a palpable feel for the different sections. Fun.

Once you take the tram28 you will have an idea all about the city and your sense of direction. After, grab your city map and walk around the city. Its a popüler ride therefore quite crowded. I would suggest if you find the fisrt stop which is near by the castle you will find a seat and enjoy your ride!

It is crowded and bumpy but fun unless it is rush hour. I found it very slow to get around and too too crowded. Watch your wallets too.

Riding the old trams is probably overrated, and they are often crowded with tourists. It's still a typical Lisbon thing to do. It takes you through nice parts of town, including many cute small streets. Tips: Down board at the Martim Moniz terminal, there will be a huge line of tourists waiting there. Also that initial part of the route... 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"!
