Trieste's slow and graceful tramway takes you from the city centre to the top of the hill that overlooks the city. On arrival, a short stroll leads to a street full of excellent restaurants. And if you go a little further, you reach the border and can look out over Slovakia.

i am told that the view from Opicina is marvelous, but the tramway is still not running. They say they are working on it and that it will be running this summer but so far there is absolutely no evidence of any progress.

We travelled from Ljubljana to Villa Opicina to get the tram to Trieste but it was not in operation. As we were informed it is usually out of service for many months every year, so don't really count on it. The locals didn't know when it would be back to service again. As we did a similar route by taxi... More

By riding the Opicina tramway, you may enjoy an unusual funicular that reaches the highland surrounding Trieste. In summer, I suggest you to go from downtown and stop at the "Obelisco" (obelisk) point, where you have a wonderful view point. Even more interesting, a pedestrian path starts there that you can enjoy walking in the green for many kilometers, possibly... More

It's great to take a ride on the opicina tram to Trieste, the view is magnificent. I live only 15km from Opicina and I sometimes take my own kids and my pupils (I teach Italian at a primary school) to Treste by tram and they always love it. I hope it works soon.

Fantastic views and good value but under renovation currently. A real find that gives a glimpse of the past glories of Austrian Trieste - the summer home of the Imperial Court.

Went to take a trip on the tramway. It's closed until 2014 we discovered. We took the bus up to Opicinia. Went to the tram depot there and into the bar/cafe. Came across a newspaper there that appears to indicate the tram way opens in 2014.

Take the ride from Trieste, the ride is steep uphill between the buildings, and then you arrive to Opicina and can take a walk, lunch at one of th trattorias, and view of the Gulf of Trieste. The tram line is historic and often not operational, so check ahead. Interesting for the children, too.

The most beautiful panoramic view from a cableway. The train is the original old one. If you are able to get to Trieste and the train is operating, do not miss this excursion.
