Lisbon Trams, Portugal.
The Lisbon tramway network serves the municipality of Lisbon in Portugal. In operation since 1873, it presently comprises five urban lines, and is primarily a tourist attraction. There are several popular tram lines. Amongst the popular lines are tram 28 from Largo Martim Moniz or tram 12 from Praça da Figueira through the narrow streets of the Alfama. Two other useful lines are tram 15 from Praça da Figueira and Praça do Comércio via Alcântara to Belem., and tram 18 from Praça do Comércio via Alcântara to Ajuda. Tram stops are marked by a small yellow paragem (stop) sign hanging from a lamppost or the overhead wires.
