Tram 28 Tours

The fabled Tram 28 is rightly one of Lisbon’s leading visitor attractions, the perfect way to introduce the charms of the city and its intriguing maze of steep cobbled streets, hills, vast churches and mirador viewpoints. The route was inaugurated in 1914 and is one of the few still to operate vintage yellow streetcars (‘electricos’ in Portuguese) dating from the 1930s; its full seven-km (4.5-mile) journey starts at Praça Martim Moniz and heads west, ending at the Campo Ourique in Prazeres.

With more than 30 stops, travelers can hop on or off at will as Tram 28 trundles through Lisbon’s oldest districts, from photogenic Moorish Alfama to the sweeping boulevards of Baixa and on through nightlife-central in the Bairro Alto to Estrela, dominated by the ornate spires of its 18th-century basilica. Other sights to catch along the way include the medieval Sé Cathedral in Alfama and São Jorge Castle (St George’s Castle) near the Portas do Sol viewpoint, with sublime views over the red roofs of the city to the River Tagus. 

The full route takes between 40 minutes and an hour, depending on traffic. Tickets are sold at subway stations and newsstands as well as on board Tram 28.

Practical Info

Single tickets cost €2.85, or €6 for a 24-hour pass that allows passengers to hop on and off the tram at will (and can be used on other forms of transport). Departures every 15 minutes between 6am and 9pm daily. Watch out for pickpockets on board the trams.
