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.

This is widely advertised and much anticipated. However we found the tram was out of operation. Judging by the long grass between the tracks, it has been out of use for many months and is not expected to be in operation until well into 2013. We caught the bus instead but that was a disappointment as you don't get the... More
