Lisbon Traditional Red Tram, Portugal.
Lisbon has an excellent tram network and all visitors to Lisbon should experience a ride on a traditional red tram. There are still many traditional trams which bump and screech around the network. It is a true experience of Lisbon to see the city by one of these quaint old trams with their wooden interiors and lurching motion. The main routes are either east or west from Baixa; east goes up hill past Castle of Saint Jorge to the district of Graça while west follows the river Tejo towards Belem.
