The trams in Lisbon are, not only one of the most useful methods of transport for getting around the city, but also one of Lisbon’s most important tourist attractions.
The network is made up of five routes and 58 trams, of which 40 are traditional. The traditional trams are small, nostalgic, and why not say it, make gorgeous photos.
Within the five different routes there are two that are unmissable.
It’s quite the institution in Lisbon: a wooden tram which takes us back to another era. Its bell never stops ringing to warn absent-minded pedestrians wandering the narrow streets of its passing.
From São Jorge Castle to the Bairro Alto, its network which circulates almost 10 kilometres allows you to enjoy the most picturesque neighborhoods: Graça, Mouraria, Alfama, Baixa, Chiado, Madragoa and Bairro Alto. Thousands of tourists use it every day.
It’s the most frequently used tram for one reason: It goes to Belém.
Tram 15 isn’t romantic; it’s useful, modern, and always travels crammed full of people, and we are always told to be careful with friends next to us – watch out.
The first stop of tram 15 is the "Cais de Sodré" station, a grand interchange station near Commerce Square.
