“Easier than walking”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

The best way to see the town is to travel up the hill in the funicolare and then walk back down through the windy streets. other alternate is the bus up which is around the same price and just as quick. the difference is the comfort. Both are crazy popular with the cable car carrying 60 or so people, the bus is a crowd at 10. So my pick is the cable car with aircon and more frequency.

“Cold, Rain and best pizza I ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

As we waited for our turn on the funicolare, we were able to hide in the awing of this little restaurant. So we would not get ran off, I ordered a Capuchino Correcto and a small cheese pizza. I don't know if was the rain and cold but the little pizza turned out to be one of the best things I ate on this trip!

“Every hill town needs at least one!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Use it at least one way to get up to Capri. You can catch buses from there up to AnaCapri or go back to the marinas. A unique way to travel up the steep hillside without the bus or taxi driver trying NOT to hit anything or anyone. Watch when the two "trains" pass, it is a well thought out design.

“Easy Way Up or Down”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Even with a line there's never a long wait to ride the Funicolare up to Capri Town or down to the Marina. The ride offers a unique perspective of the island and it's best to stand in the back on the way up or the front on the way down for the best photo opportunities.

“Funicolare Ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

What a fun cheap ride from the dock area up to the business area. Highly recommend....
However finding the entry through the crowds of the dock area was a bit of a job. Try to miss when tour groups are going...it was very crowded coming back down when our timing was bad.
