Electrico - Lisbon Tram
An “electrico” or traditional Lisbon tram. There are many expensive tours on double decker buses, but a ride with electrico 28 will also bring you to most attractions and actually get much closer to some of them. It’s also much cheaper - and more fun! The sign on the tram says “colinas de Lisboa” - “Hills of Lisbon” and indeed, it has a steep hill to climb. Like Rome, Lisbon is built on 7 hills and there are “Miradouras” (”golden views”) almost everywhere.
