The trams in Lisbon are, not only one of the most useful means of transport to get around the city, but also one of the city’s most popular tourist attractions.
Portugal’s capital currently has five different routes and 58 trams, of which 40 are vintage streetcars. The heritage trams are small, nostalgic and an emblematic symbol of Lisbon, making for great photos.
The nostalgic tram 28 is an institution in itself. This wooden tram will transport you to another era. Its horn rings constantly to warn absent-minded pedestrians to move out of the way when it runs past the city’s long and narrow streets.
The tram links São Jorge Castle and Bairro Alto, crossing various picturesque neighbourhoods for 6.2 miles (10 km), including Graça, Mouraria, Alfama, Baixa, Chiado, Madragoa and Bairro Alto. Thousands of tourists take this tram every day.
