    Tram 28, Probably the best way to explore Lisbon

    The Tram, or “Electrico” line 28 is a Icon of Lisbon and one of the ultimate experiences in Lisbon. For this very small price you will have access to a wonderful experience of riding a Eletrico (Tram) while it crosses most of Lisbon and its more genuine areas.

    Take caution with your belongings, this Tram is a very know tourist attraction and a preferred spot for pick pockets
