Recommended by the guide book we thought we would have a ride on this historic tram. Fortunately we got there early as contrary to the information in the guide book you cannot purchase tickets, on the outward journey, on board. The tram driver was very pleasant and directed us to the nearby ticket office, then kindly suggested we got on... 更多
We took a tram on Monday, sonit was not crowded at all. Dont expect luxury travel, tram is really old, route is rocky. But you feel like a child, very exited in it! It costs €3 for a single travel, takes about 40 minutes to the beach. We came back to Sintra by bus 441 as it was faster. Really... 更多
Many websites say it only runs weekends, but here on a Thursday and it ran right on schedule. It's a slow trip through time but if you're a streetcar fan don't miss it. The Oceanside village it ends in is attractive and has many good seafood restaurants. Try the grilled octopus! It's 3 euro each way, 2 if you're a... 更多
The tram between Sintra and Praia das Macas is a feature of our everyday life, as we live along its tracks. When we took our first ride last summer, I was charmed by its steady roll up the hill to Sintra, and the way it weaves between the back alleys and along the valley road. They have been doing a... 更多
The cost is 5-6 Euro for a 1-way ride. Tickets are purchased on the board just before departure. The route takes you to Sintra area on the Atlantic ocean and it is about 40 min.

Well, there are faster and less jolty way to get to the beach - but the tram is quite enchanting. I would take it one way, then enjoy the comforts and convenience of the 441 bus back. .
I took bus 441 to the beach and met the tram from opposite direction midway around 3:18pm. I waited at Praia till after 6pm and the tram never show up again. According to time table it will make a round trip every 2 hours. It is freezing after sunset but it is not dark at all. Just take the bus... 更多
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.
