Electrico - Lisbon Tram

Filed under: — site admin @ 11:20 pm

the famous Electrico (Lisboa / Lisbon, Portugal, Photo by Laurenz Bobke)

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.

Ponte 25 de Abril (Lisbon)

Sunset over the Ponte 25 de Abril, seen from Cascilhas
A cheap and entertaining way to see Lisbon from another angle is to take the ferry to Cacilhas.
Here I was lucky enough to see quite an impressive sky over the “Ponte 25 de Abril” bridge just before sunset.
