The storied Tram 28 lurches and screeches from Basílica da Estrela across the city into the backstreets of Baixa and up into the narrow cobblestone maze of Alfama and hilltop Graça in classic Remodelado trams, which were originally commissioned in the 1930s due to their abilities to navigate Lisbon's sharp twists and steep hills. It's one of the best €2.85 city tours you'll find anywhere in the world, but crowds (and pickpockets) are an issue. Go at dawn to watch the city—and its swooping andorinhas (housemartin swallows) in season—wake up, without the battle for a seat.
