Cute

Everyone should ride in this tram at list once. There is so cute and unrepeatable experience, and ticket is so cheap. Enjoy this!

I couldn't miss the old No 2 tram parked up at a terminal stop right outside the Albergo alla Posta hotel on the night we arrived. To my amusement it turned out to be the very tram I wanted to ride up to Opicina and I enjoyed the ride very much. Much has already been said about the panoramic views... More

Yes please take a ride back in history on this very old tram. The ride has some very steep sections and offer some great views. A must do in Trieste

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
