  • Lisbon Trams Guide

    One of the most iconic symbols of Lisbon are the old trams which rattle around the winding streets and avenues of the city. First established in 1873 the city has been running electric trams since 1901. The current trams are a mix of the vintage and the new, but when one thinks of a Lisbon tram it is most likely to be one of the old, yellow 'remodelados' which date back to the 1930s.
