28 Tram< Back to TIPS

Just 2 minutes from Portuguese Soul House doorstep you have the 28 tram (eletrico) stoppage that take you over the 7 hills of this fantastic city

To ride on the number 28 tram is perhaps Lisbons most popular activity: a ride back in time over hills and medieval streets in vintage wooden trams that go past some major attractions of the capital. Line 28 of Lisbons iconic trams was inaugurated in 1914 and today it has a 7km (4.5 miles) route between Martim Moniz Square and the neighborhood of Prazeres. Along the way the route takes in some of the capitals most attractive neighbourhoods and majestic monuments, including São Vicente in Alfama and the Sé (cathedral). At Praça Luís de Camões passengers can disembark in the heart of the elegant Chiado quarter or remain onboard until Jardim da Estrela, perhaps the citys prettiest public garden and overshadowed by the impressive dome of the Basílica da Estrela.
