A nice ride with the charming tram up the hill gave us a nice view over the whole Trieste. Did not want to go hiking but hopped off at the monument and then walked to the last station of the tram. Enjoyed a cup of coffee with the locals at the station bar.

This is a fun and interesting tourist attraction. It may be one of the few of these funicular trams left in the world. the cost of the ride is a bit over a dollar and a half one way. No rest room facilities on board but at both terminus at the bar where you can also get coffee, drinks and... More

We were there on a Sunday and not a lot of tourist things to do so we took the tram ride. A very interesting trip, going almost straight up. It starts as a trolly and part way up, when the steep part begins, the car somehow attaches to a cable and is pulled up the hill. Note that only a... More

There is something so continental and urbane about trams. Why can't we have more of them in the UK? This one is a Triestino institution that takes you from the city centre up a steep incline to the hilltop Slovene/Italian settlement of Opcina (Villa Opicina), and only 1.60 Euros. The hill is so steep it needs an extra engine to... More

Lovely ride up the hills to Opicina. Low cost. When travelling by interrail this is only a small additional cost going to Ljubljana, reducing time greatly, in comparision to suggestion in interrail app.

The tram is a marvellous way to travel from Opicina to Trieste. The tram itself is historic, very nice to ride in. Cheap tickets

This tram ride is well worth visiting. it is in-expensive at around 2.60 euros return. we got off the tram at Villa Opicina which is an interesting local area with a variety of shops and places to eat. there are good views of the city from the tram and different places to disembark with walks along the hillsides.

This is a cheap little one hour return trip that leaves from the centre of Trieste and takes you up to the town of Opicina high above city. It is not a tourist tram but a regular commuter service to the town so expect public transport. Get off a couple of stops before Opicina at the viewing lookout and take... More
