I have never imagined that Lisbon is such a hilly place, which makes it more unique and beautiful! When you have the chance to go there, you must explore those hills on foot or better yet, on board a historical tram. I would have preferred walking but I was alone.
The hop-on hop-off tour that I got includes 1 tram ride and I enjoyed every moment of it. Just like the bus in Paris, the tram was equipped with the audio tour guide. The hop-on hop-off tour also comes with a pair of earphones.
Do you know that Lisbon is known as the “cidade das sete colinas” (city of the seven hills)? The legend says that the city was originally built over seven hills. I forgot how many are “left” though. I just remember about the strong earthquake that greatly devastated Lisbon.
The rain had just stopped when the tram tour started so there are still rain drops in the photos.
Anyway, I hope you’ll still enjoy looking at the photos I took during the tram ride:
Here’s also a video for you…
My Lisbon adventure didn’t end here just yet
