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.
