  • Enjoy the old-style charm of tram travel
  • Best way to climb up Lisbon’s hills
  • See historical Lisbon and the folk who live there

Take an old-style tram and rattle around some of the most interesting parts of Lisbon with an informative audio-guide.

See major landmarks such as the imposing Castle of São Jorge, once a Moorish royal residence, and Santa Maria Maior de Lisboa, Lisbon’s cathedral.

Marvel at the many faces of this richly diverse city. Contrast the old-fashioned village atmosphere of medieval Alfama with the sophistication of upmarket Chiada. Compare the tangled maze of streets and buildings of Mouraria with the grandeur and opulence of Laba.

There are not many places in Europe where you can still ride a tramcar. Going by tram is not only a wonderful way to see Lisbon, it is also a lot of fun!

Make your way to Praça do Comércio for the Lisbon Tramcar Hills Tour, where you will board your tramcar. Lisbon’s trams are famous and a great way to get around this beautiful hilly city. An audio- guide (available in Portuguese, English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch and Japanese) will inform you about places of interest on the way.

Your tram will take approximately one-and-a half hours to travel through the historic districts of Lisbon. On the way you will pass the great Castle of São Jorge. Parts of the structure date back to the 6th century and it was a Moorish royal residence until the king of Portugal captured it in 1147.

You will also pass Santa Maria Maior de Lisboa, the cathedral of Lisbon and the oldest church in the city. Construction began in 1147 and the building has undergone many changes over the years. It is now a mix of several architectural styles.

As you rattle along, you can see the city’s inhabitants chatting in doorways or going about their daily business. You will enjoy the cozy village atmosphere of medieval Alfama with its maze of alleys, white-washed houses, lines of washing and balconies with potted plants.

You will also pass through Mouraria, another ancient quarter of the city with the same labyrinthine street pattern as Alfama. The Moors withdrew into this district after Lisbon was conquered by the Portuguese.

Experience the contrast, as you travel through sophisticated Chiado, an elegant and charming neighborhood with theaters, bookshops, cafes, and expensive shops. And your tram ride also includes wealthy Lapa, the diplomatic quarter, with its grand embassy buildings and splendid mansions.

At the end of your fascinating tram ride you will be dropped back at the starting point.
