There is something just cute about a tram. It’s like a tiny choo-choo train making its way into all the tight, hidden spaces of a city. Whatever you call it – trolley, streetcar, tram – they are efficient, less polluting than buses, and fun to ride on.
Lisbon’s Tram system has been up and running since the 1870s. Happy yellow Tram number 28 is one of the best ways to see the sights of the city. Hop on and it brings you up and down the hills through all the popular barrios like the Alfama and Chiado. Sitting inside the trolley car itself, you feel like you’ve stepped back in time inside the wood-walled, car with open windows for ‘air-conditioning.’
Take a look at this quick video for your own guided tour on the 28!
