Getting around Lisbon
Lisbon, the city of the seven hills, is one of the oldest cities in the world. Lisbon was called many things over the centuries like Luxbona, Lixbuna or Ulixbone (hence the LX shorthand still used today).
Walking is the best way to wander around in Lisbon, cross its narrow streets, enjoy the views on the top of its hills and mingle with the population.
For longer distances, public transportation is fast and cheap. And you can't miss the chance to ride one of the famous yellow trams.
