The author of "The Beauty of Lisbon Tram-28-A Journey in the History invites for a special ride aboard the 28 tram.
Should be noted the eclectic approach of these special visit since the author points out historic facts that took place in certain points of the route – such as all the happenings that occurred in Praça do Comércio, for instance - and also invokes important cultural personalities – such as the great poet Fernando Pessoa - that lived and worked in a few neighborhoods of the city where the Eléctrico 28 makes its stopovers.
But if you really want to know this city, you have to taste its gastronomy, perambulate through the “calçada portuguesa”, marvel with the light and the wonderful views offered by the city and soak up the atmosphere.
In Lisbon, you will find the best of Mediterranean Diet, recently classified Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, by UNESCO, with its delicious bread, olive oil, cheese, and sausages and a variety of snacks, always accompanied by the finest wines. For a meal , we find from the most traditional and typical restaurants , to the most sophisticated international and typical gastronomic specialties, where innovative chefs reinvented Portuguese cuisine, with interesting and refined ways to fabricate the traditional products of our gastronomy.
Lisbon, ancient and modern city, is full of “cafés” and terraces, where we can sit down drinking a “bica” and tasting a “pastel de Belém”.

The route of tramway 28 covers around 7 km, crossing the city from west to east - from Prazeres to Graça -, and encompass 2.500 years of History of the Portuguese capital. Phoenician, Roman and Arab remains can be found along the route as well as Gothic, Barroque and neo-classic churches and monasteries, the distinctive architecture of Baixa Pombalina, designed by Marquis de Pombal after the Earthquake of 1755, and also a important selection of historic buildings.

Gourmet Tour

This tour takes place between Baixa and Chiado, two of the most emblematic sites in the historical centre of Lisbon.
We will enjoy petiscos (the Portuguese tapas), typically peixinhos da horta (deep fried green beans), pastéis de bacalhau with arroz de tomate (cod cakes with tomato rice), caldo verde (kale soup) with sausages, Iberian ham (you might know it as “prosciutto”), sheep cheese from Azeitão and tinned sardines in two of the best places in Chiado.
The next step in our tasting takes place in one of the finest cellars in Lisbon: there, we get to know two of  Portugal’s typical fortified wines, Porto or Moscatel  (a dessert wine made with muscat grapes). An expert explains to us the unique secrets of these wines.
We finish with a great custard tart.
