We went from Sintra to Praia das Macas (beach of apples) and back on this delightful tram today. It was rackety, scenic, and made me very happy. It takes a lot to operate this 1904 electrico with a crank to brake (not turn the wheels as it appears), another crank for power, a foot pedal to sound the bell (frequently),... 更多
It was hard to find but worth it.The original tram and track, it goes along side the road and in parts between houses and thru the centre of a small town.
If you want to stand like packed herrings in 35 degrees go for it! Otherwise walking beside the tram in same speed is much more entertaining and you actually get to see things around you.
We were there mid-September. On a Sunday afternoon we took the tram to the beach and took the bus back. While I did enjoy the tram, it was noisy as advertised. There was nothing to really see/do at the beach end other than perhaps eat/drink. I'm glad our guest house told us we could take the bus back. The bus,... 更多
went to lisbon for a day last week. Highly recommended the old tram ride. What a disappointment. Cued for nearly 2 hours to get on the tram - on the shady side of the street. No information from tram representative at all. Tram came. nearly 2 hours later still on tram. Traffic jam after traffic jam. No word as to... 更多

In good weather the open sided trams are used, in worse weather there are closed in ones. It costs around 3 Euros each way; in Praia buy them from... 更多
Sintra - Praia das Macas tram gives you a "jump in the past experience" but I prefere the tram 28 from Lisbon. I cannot say which is more authentic but the Sintra tram is not good on a windy day and it screeches terribly. Strong nerves are needed ! You are closer to the nature than in to the bus... 更多
we took the tram with the kids to go to Praia das Maçâs and we loved it. it's taking time to do a small trip down to the beach. the only problem has been that there was no other tram to go back, we couldn't stay at the beach, we had to go back immediately. but, we liked it a... 更多
You don't have to be a transport fanatic to enjoy this little tramway. It's more than 100 year old cars carry just 24 passengers in true old-fashioned style. It follows the steep, twisting road down from Sintra, past fields and villages to the little seaside town of Praia das Maçãs, Apart from the beach and some nice little bars and... 更多
