Q – We will soon be visiting Portugal. We were in our doctor’s office on Saturday and he mentioned that there was a fantastic, curvy, atmospheric tram ride through some interesting neighborhoods in Lisbon. But he he didn’t remember the name of it. He couldn’t remember if it was orange or yellow. Actually, he’s not even sure if it was Madrid or Lisbon – this was about ten years ago. Anyone on your staff who might know about this?
A – Well our first thought was that we hope you are not seeing this doctor for help with memory loss.
You want to catch the #28 tram that runs between the quite hilly Alfama District to the Prazeres Cemetery. This is an old, old route and the cars reflect that. They are painted a bright yellow and have wood interiors. There will be lots of close turns down narrow streets. It’s a great ride and should not be missed by anyone visiting Lisbon.
