Red Tram, Lisbon, Portugal.
In three previous posts in November 2012 (2) and July 2012 (1) I have written about the famous Red Trams of Lisbon.
Take an old-style tram and rattle around some of the most interesting parts of Lisbon on the famous Tram Network of Lisbon on a Red Tram. See major landmarks such as the imposing Castle of São Jorge, once a Moorish royal residence, and Santa Maria Maior de Lisboa, Lisbon’s cathedral. Marvel at the many faces of this richly diverse city. Contrast the old-fashioned village atmosphere of medieval Alfama with the sophistication of upmarket Chiada. Compare the tangled maze of streets and buildings of Mouraria with the grandeur and opulence of Laba. There are not many places in Europe where you can still ride a tramcar. Going by tram is not only a wonderful way to see Lisbon, it is also a lot of fun!
