We took the 15 tram to Belém, very slow and crowded. The next time was metro/train much better. The funicular up the hill €7.50 for two people for a very short distance was a total rip off.

We did a few journies around Lisbon in the trams and funiculars of Lisbon. We even had an extended tour by getting in the famous number 28 going the wrong way! The only problem is they are always absolutely packed and you will be lucky...More

We boarded the funicular - actually just a tram car- and enjoyed the short, slow ride up and down the gradient. Being so used to fast-paced transport it was a welcome change (though a bit trying), to slow down for a bit. And also try...More

The trams and funiculars in Lisbon are the least convenient public transport to travel in the city. They are more of a gimmick rather than a practical way to travel in the hilly city. Go for the Metro, instead.

Amazing to ride on one of these but best to get up early and do it. Long queues by lunchtime and by late afternoon the trams are at a standstill in traffic as they obviously can't drive around anything.

If you visit Lisbon a short trip on funicular is part of ‘the tour’ of things you must do! Short wait to board and climb but worth it if you don’t want to scale the many steps!!

The trams which are a ubiquitous sight in Lisbon are now aged and require regular maintenance. There are cases of delays and occasional breakdowns. The narrow tracks enable the trams to squeeze past crowded areas like Alfama and Baixa,This is both a boon and a...More

Chiado & Carmo
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally,
"squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers
plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can
stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its
streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and
viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the
famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa,
having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used
