Travelled to Trieste to visit for 2 days and took the tram all the way up. Fantastic way to get the best views. Not sure when to get off but we just stayed to the end. Too hot to walk around the city with my parents so this was a great treat and fun adventure.

Loved the views of the city and the waterfront. For less than 2 euros you get a fabulous ride in an old tram and excellent holiday shots.

Really enjoyed this tram ride as it was pulled up the Trieste escapement with great views of Trieste and the Mediterranean. Not sure about the previous comments about the hot carriage - air-conditioning was working well on my tram which made the ride pleasant - would even recommend it as a trip for the middle of a hot day.

All the way up is charming, the path was nice enough, though not recomended in the hot days. Pebbly path. Go there ready with good sneakers for enjoying the walk, cold water, and maybe a little picnic for the middle or end. Some parts you don't see any panoramic view, it is covered in dense trees both sides...

It's like to be in the old times! It's worthy to try this rare experience, because you suppose to be in the firts year of the XX century. When you arrive at the end, in the village of Opicina, go to see the "Grotta Gigante" (by bus 5').

The poor reviews seem solely to relate to days when the tram was not operating which seems a bit unfair! You can use your bus ticket and escape the heat for a while, sit on the left as you board so that you have a clear view of the bay. It doesn't suggest that it's anything other than a tram... More

The view is nice from the tram, nothing special thought. The Opicina village instead is ugly: my advice is to go there only if you have nothing to do.

A touch of old in a quaint little city. You can't leave Trieste without taking the tram up to the top. And to make it a great day out - walk down. Magnificent views all round.

You have to try this streetcar/tram if you have the need of if you want a cool experience. The views are great and it will take you back in time. The engineering is fabulous as well!

Great use of one of our ten bus tickets. The tram (route No. 2) leaves for Opicina from the centre of Trieste and takes you up the steepest hill you could imagine. The weather was hot and we were exhausted so thought we would do this rather than walk around. The reward for our effort was fantastic views over the... More
