We arrive by cruise ship at 09:00 and leave at 19:00, and would like to go on the funicular railway. I believe it may be very busy trying to buy a ticket at the station, and advises you cannot buy in advance. Do you know how far it is to walk from where the ships dock to the station, or any way you can buy these tickets in advance? Do the trains run continually throughout the day? Any other tips on this, or other areas that are worth seeing. Thank you.
