Santos and the tramway

The first and the second pictures were taken by my daughter B. It is Santos, a city in the state of São Paulo, Brazil.

You can see Morro Santa Terezinha Hill on the background.

The sea on the background.

This is my picture of Ana Costa Ave. 

A sightseeing tour by tramway downtown. 



This tramway does not run anymore,  but you can still see it on the square as a tourist attraction and take a picture with the dummy on the door.



I do love a trip on the tramway to see the historical points downtown.

  1. It all looks so neat and clean. I've never been on a tram, looks a great way to take in all the sights.

  2. Hello Molly!

    I used to take a ride in tramway when I was a child because there were not buses. And nowadays this trip is very nice to remember good times!

    Thank you for visiting! 🚃⌛

  3. The city views with the sea and the mountain in the background are wonderful. We have trams in our city, but not as attractive looking as yours.
    The photo of the old tram is very interesting.

  4. It looks like a very busy city. The trams stopped running in my city in 1959, but some cities in the UK still have them.

    1. Hi Jo! Yes, it is getting bigger than the old times when I was a child or a teen. We do not have trams running on the streets as a means of transportation. I really would like it, but there are some of them running through historical places downtown. This is a lovely trip that I go again and take pictures to show to all of you.

      UK is a beautiful country and have lots of beautiful things to see.

      Wishing you a lovely weekend.
