In Lisbon, getting there really is part of the fun, as the charming clanking old trams are still the best way to reach the top of the steepest hills.
A popular tram is tram 28 that passes through the oldest quarters, while the colorful funiculars of Gloria and Bica are fun ways to reach Bairro Alto.
Best of all is reaching the top of Santa Justa Elevator and finding Lisbon standing below.
And to best appreciate the city's setting, there's the commuter ferry to Cacilhas from Cais do Sodre station, the daily joy of thousands of locals who can admire their city's skyline on their way to or from work.
