The creaking yellow vintage trams of the Carris public transportation company look as if they belong in a museum. These are one of the best ways to get around the city. Tram 28 is famous, taking riders on a 40-minute trip up (or down) the hill through old neighbourhoods such as Graça, Alfama and Baixa, along many historical highlights, including the cathedral and the castle. Todos a bordo!
Lisbon is one of the cheapest capitals in Western Europe. However, this does not necessarily apply to transportation: a tour in a touristy double-decker bus costs around 15 euro. The 6 euro day card for the tram is a much better deal and allows you to ride all over the city for an entire day. No wonder line 28 is popular among tourists. Board the old-fashioned yellow tram and sit back for a fast and bumpy ride through Lisbon's winding streets.
