  #15 Trolley in Belem
by rexvaughan

We enjoy using public transportation and find it usually the easiest, most scenic and most economical way to get around any city. However in Lisbon my wife was hobbling a bit with a broken toe so we avoided negotiating the metro stairs and walks usually involved. However, the bus, tram and trolley system is at street level and will get you most places in the old city like the Castle and Belem. We took the #37 bus from Praca da Figueira to the castle and the #15 trolley from Rua do Arsenal to Belem where it stops right at the monastery. The cost is about 1.20 Euro but you can buy two rides for 1.40 or a one day pass, "7 Colinas," for 3.00 at the booths on Praca da Figueira. Also, the LisboaCard covers these transports as well.
