In my university times, I used to take these (as well as the 'saloons', just like the old ones but longer, as long as a big bus; no longer in service). Quite a comfortable and relaxing ride along the Tagus river. Along with the so-called elevators (steep climbing trams), in summertime the old trams were the only type of public transportation where you could smoke without bothering anywone because all windows were open. Don't know if it's still allowed.

The old has more character, but these are nice too.

João: We were not allowed to smoke in public transport for a long time. And since January 1st, we can not smoke anywhere. You can throw banana peels to the ground, spit, but not smoking!
It is citizens repressing each other...

Uma por dia: actually you cannot throw banana peels around. :)
