Tram 28

Address: Praça Luis de Camões, Lisbon, Portugal

- Budget


One of Lisbon's century-old trams, which trundles through Lisbon's most historic streets.

The number 28 tram rumbles through Lisbon's oldest neighbourhoods, saving those tired legs from hiking up and down the city's many hills. Passing through the shopping districts of Baixa and Chiado, the vintage tram then labours up the hill towards the old Alfama district and beyond the Castelo São Jorge, before stopping at the perfect cross-water sunset spot in Graça.
