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.

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.
