Walking: the best way to visit Lisbon is walking. The Lisbonaire is ideally located to visit the main attractions. Rossio Square, Baixa, Chiado, Bairro Alto, Alfama, the river and the Castle are all between 5 and 15 minutes away. Public transportation: the 6€ VIVA ticket allows to travel the city buses, trams and subway for 24h. For single trips you can buy individual tickets, inside the transport. Tram: the tram is a charming way to visit the old town center. The 28 tram takes you on a 7km ride along the historic districts of Lisbon (nearest stop, Rua da Conceição). The tram can get a bit crowded so beware of your belongings. Tram 15 departs from Praça da Figueira and takes you to the monumental area of Belém. Tickets can be bought inside the tram, for 2,85€ per person. Pre-bought tickets are cheaper. Subway: the subway is the fastest way to get to a distant location in Lisbon, although not very useful in the historic center. Use it to go to Gulbenkian, Parque das Nações or the Airport. See the network diagram. 'Cacilheiros': Lisbon's public riverboats depart from Praça do Comércio, Cais do Sodré and Belém. Its a wonderful way to view the city's skyline from the river and much cheaper than the tourist options. Price from 1,20€ per person. Funiculars: Lisbon has several hills that can be quite steep. You can be comfortably transported to the top using the centenary lifts and funiculars, at a cost of around 4€.
