Had the opportunity to take the tram from Trieste to Villa Opicina and it was a great "short" trip - the views were break taking and it was a great way to make the trip. Its well worth the very modest price of just over 1 Euro.

Our beloved cable car is now running again. SO do not miss this beautiful "promenade", enjoy the view and experience an original last century trip.

Well we ran for the tram we saw one leaving the station in late July, August 2014 this year as we had planned to take the cross-country trip from Venice in to Slovenia. I tried to get a photo but my phone wouldn't load fast enough so I missed it completely which made me really sad. We asked when the... More

The Opicina Tramway is a wonderful way to move from the lower levels of Trieste to Opicina where there are magnificent views of the city below and the beautiful Gulf of Trieste. The cost is very modest and well worth the experience. It is not just for tourists though, but is a vital part of the city's transport infrastructure that... More

My husband loves this tram as it so reminds him of his childhood. We rode it twenty years ago and again on our most recent visit. It's a historical gem and the ride and destination overlooking all of Trieste is a must do. It's a small piece of what Trieste once was and for all of the changes taking place... More

Yes, If you were excited about riding the famous Tram on your visit to Trieste, then you could be disappointed. It has not been working for some time and by what we have read in the local paper, it could be out for ever, as various authorities are arguing about who is responsible for the costs. This is a serious... More

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.
