It can be argued that Lisbon's old trams are the city's best-known feature and any trip to Portugal's capital is not complete without taking a ride on an eléctrico. They have chugged their way up some of the steepest hills in Europe since the 1930s.

Their small profile is ideal for negotiating the narrow streets and tight corners found in Lisbon's oldest districts. At times trams come within touching distance of the walls of houses. Five routes of rickety bone-shaking trams remain an integral part of Carris' public transport network, however, the Tram #28 is by far the most popular with visitors.

Ferry across the river

The most adventurous way to cross the mighty Tejo (Tagus) river is by ferry. It leaves the Cais do Sodré Ferry Terminal in Lisbon, ideally located on the green metro line and terminates at Cacilhas.

Driving in Lisbon

A1 Motorway


Most of the main sights of Lisbon are found within its old town, with some districts being a warren of narrow cobbled roads hard to navigate and better explored on foot. Personally, I would avoid driving within the city boundaries as it can feel very chaotic, especially during public holidays. Away from the old city centre, there's a great network of quality roads that are ideal for exploring the region, making car rental a viable option if you're planning to travel further afield.

Car Rental

You can rent a car at the airport or at various places throughout the city. Alternatively, you can book online at your connivance and pick it up from your place of choice:
