Ride Tram 28

Visitors have the choice of discovering this beautiful city by foot or taking a ride on this famous yellow tram. The age old tram 28 presents a fun and unique way of touring the city from Martim Moniz to Campo Ourique.

It is also a great way of understanding the history and geography of the city. The trams can be packed during peak periods, so getting there before 11am most days, is quite recommended.

Also known as St. George’s Castle, it can be found on top of the tallest hill in Lisbon and gives a magnificent view of the city below, including the Tegus River and the Baixa district.

Lisbon Cuisine

You cannot leave Lisbon without trying their awesome dishes. Some we can mention include, Lulas recheadas à lisbonense, the city’s signature dish. Apparently its lengthy name means, “Lisbon style stuffed squid”. After being stuffed with a mix of garlic, sausage and onions, the squid is baked and garnished with parsley. It is a treat for any seafood lover.

Also try a dish called a Bacalhau à brás, made from Portugal's favourite fish, the Bacalhau. You can pair your food with a Potuguese liquor called Ginjinha, made from cherry-alike berry.
