Tram 28 has become very popular with tourists as a means to seeing the old historical centre of Lisbon (very often hanging out of the window with camera in hand) from an old local tram that also carries people to their work and daily commutes.
It takes you up an down the mountains at a speed of roughly 50km an hour sometimes making it resemble a roller coaster.
