    Kissing trams

    Turn left at the end of the street, into Calçada de São Francisco, making a 180 degree turn to walk downhill.

    Here you'll find many interesting architectural details. But this street is also a great place to photograph the yellow trams that have helped residents navigate the city’s narrow streets and steep hills since 1901.

    If you’re patient, you can wait for the perfect moment to take a photo of “kissing trams.” Wait until you see one tram coming up and the other going down and position yourself to take a photo when they first cross each other.

    You'll hear from me again further down this street, when you get to the next intersection. So just keep walking straight, stopping here and there to take photos.

Preview mode limited to first 3 locations. Purchase to hear all 20.
