    Lisbon Line 28E, Portuguese: Carreira 28E dos Eléctricos de Lisboa, is one of five lines of the Lisbon tram. It connects the differently shaped sections of Alfama, Baixa and Lapa in the center of Lisbon with the Prazeres district. The vintage cars used on the line, which are exceptionally steep for an adhesion railway - including 13.5 percent slope of one of the steepest sections in the world - tight bends and the route through narrow old streets have led to the line - like the ring line 12E, with which she shares a part of the route - especially popular with tourists. The "famous line 28" is now considered one of the most famous sights of the Portuguese capital and the ride with her as a "must" of a visit.

  • Tram number 28 in Lisbon connects Martim Moniz with Campo Ourique and travels through the popular tourist districts of Graca, Alfama, Baixa and Estrela. For visitors, this is a classic - you drive in the lovable yellow tram, which makes its way through the narrow streets of the city in a clattering way.
    A ride along the entire route of the Tram 28 offers one of the best tours in the capital and is often a highlight of any holiday in Lisbon.
    Drive the tram early in the morning (or late in the day) to avoid the crowds.
    • Join Martim Moniz (or Campo Ourique) for a better chance of getting a seat.
    • Be aware of pickpockets (more information below).
    • Buy the 24-hour public transport ticket from any metro station.
    • Drive the entire route, because there is so much to see (more information below).
    • If you have a standing room, hold on tight. The brakes of the tram are very strong!
    A single ticket in the tram costs € 3.00. A much better option is the 24-hour public transport ticket, including metro, tram and bus. This ticket costs € 6.40, but annoyingly can only be bought at the ticket machines in the metro stations. ,
    Insider tip: This 24-hour ticket offers excellent value for money as it includes the Elevador de Santa Justa, the Elevador da Glória and various journeys along the E28 route.

  • With this tram you should have ridden once, but preferably early in the morning, otherwise you feel like in a sardine can

  • It's amazing that this time-honored tram still rides after so many years and masters the narrow streets, bends and steep climbs. But gradually new trains are used.
    To enjoy a ride, you have to get up early because the old tram is usually overcrowded.

  • It is already impressive that such an old (that is to say, historical) railway can cope with the special demands of the terrain - narrow roads (especially curves) and steep climbs. However, they are usually hopelessly overcrowded.

  • Simply beautiful - in this nostalgic tram you feel transported to a bygone era. But patience is needed, the queues are long

  • Absolute highlight. And even if you've seen them so often. You always enjoy sightings / encounters.
    However, if you want to ride, you need patience. At lunchtime it is packed and you have to wait a few trains to get a free seat. Better drive it in the morning.
