So you want to make your way around the city but you want to blend in. Then take all the normal transportation that “Lisbonites” take and you will feel like one of them. Use Carris.pt to view three options for travel-trams, buses and elevators. Lets face it, the train is the fastest, but not always the most convenient and you cannot see and experience anything underground. But if you must train it (like for work), visit this site .
