Visit Lisbon on board Tram 28

Hop on the famous yellow tramway to visit Lisbon, the portuguese capital, in an authentic atmosphere!

Travelling via the tram line in Lisbon is both an authentic and useful experience: the (electric) trams – which came into service in August 1901 – take you effortlessly up the steep slopes of the hills of the Portuguese capital. There are five different lines (12, 15, 18, 25, 28), though the last one, line No. 28, is by far the most famous. Initiated in 1914, Line No 28 serves the hills and the centre of Lisbon.

Tram 28 runs through the narrow streets of the centre of Lisbon, so you will sometimes have to lean close to the wall.

Where to stay in Lisbon?
Lisbon is a city where walking can be quite tedious because of its elevation difference. Make sure you choose a fairly central hotel in the right neighborhood and take a good look at the tram stops so you have time to cover the whole city!

I grant myself at least 3 to 4 trips each year to the four corners of the world, whether it is very close to my home, as in South America, Europe or Southeast Asia. A question about a destination, a visit, a deal? I answer them in the comments.
