Through the Tram 28 Window

TRAVEL DIARY: LISBON 3

Because of the wet weather, we opted for a tram ride to explore the significant sights of Lisbon rather than staying indoors.

Went on the TRAM 28, one of the famous Lisbon icons. It passes through the popular tourist districts for about a 40-minute journey. It took us winding up (or down) the hill.

As I glimpsed scenes through the tram window, I was lucky that the rain paused briefly, allowing me to capture photos. All the while, my husband was anxious about my phone slipping out of my hands.

Some churches

As the tram navigated through narrow streets, we were so close to the houses that we could easily reach out and touch them from our seats. It feels so exciting like a ride in Disneyland haha

More sites to admire from the tram window.

Through a tram window… a rainy day in Lisbon proved to be surprisingly enjoyable, with the colourful sites and umbrellas adding an extra layer of excitement to the experience.

      It does look like Porto. It is also hilly.
