About Lisbon

If you were to take a poll, many would include Lisbon on their list of favourite places. It’s small yet immensely charming.

Lisbon is a picturesque port city, characterised by romantic cobblestone streets, mosaic sidewalks, rolling hills and pastel houses. It’s also a diverse city, blending a range of cultures. The oldest part of the city, the Alfama quarter, still retains its medieval feel.

Lisbon is not stuck in the past however, plus it’s a city that breathes football.

Oceanário de Lisboa: Considered the best aquarium in the world by Tripadvisor, in 2015 and 2017, Oceanário de Lisboa features 8,000 marine creatures. Among these, rays, coral reefs, sharks and sea otters. An experience that everyone wants to live.

Touring through the permanent exhibition is an exalting experience for the senses. A big central aquarium, with five million litres of saltwater, symbolises the Global Ocean. Surrounding this big aquarium, four marine habitats create the illusion that there is only one aquarium. The visit is between two levels, at surface and underwater.

The temporary exhibition, “Forests Underwater by the famous aquascaper Takashi Amano”, presents tropical forests and their aquatic systems through the largest nature aquarium in the world.

Tram 28: The number 28 Lisbon tram connects Martim Moniz with Campo Ourique, and passes through the popular tourist districts of Graca, Alfama, Baixa and Estrela.

For visitors, this is the classic Lisbon tram journey, riding in the quaint yellow tram as it screeches and rattles through the narrow streets of the city. The delightful Remodelado trams date from the 1930s and in any other city they would be housed in a museum, but in Lisbon they are an integral part of the public transport network.

These historic trams are still in use, as the 28 route is completely unsuitable for modern trams due to its numerous tight turns and steep gradients.

A ride along the entire 28 tram route provides one of the best tours of the capital and is often a highlight of any holiday to Lisbon.
