The famous tram (Electrico 28) is undoubtedly one of the most characteristic symbols of Lisbon. A trip on the old yellow tram through the hills and narrow streets of Lisbon is a "must"! The route of E28 starts in Largo Martim Moniz and ends in Prazeres taking you throught the most important districts of the city.



Free Ride: if you want to save on the ticket
First trams using horse power were brought from America and were used in Lisbon in 1873. In 1902, the horse trams were replaced with the electric trams and in 1928 the line of Tram 28 was opened for public use. The electricos which are used today were brought from USA (similar can be seen in San Francisco) and were named "Americanos". In XX century the trams were renovated and since then were called Remodelado until this day. "Carris" means the tram tracks in Portuguese language and that is also a name of the company, which provide public transportation in Lisbon. This yellow, old trams with wooden interior are one of the most popular touristic attractions. Riding the tram up and down the hills of Lisbon is a truly unforgettable experience.
