“A wonderful landscape and some trecking”
Review of Opicina Tramway

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 having a picnic. If you like a more quiet option, you may continue up to the last stop and get some ice-cream or lunch at some of the restaurant close to there.
Note that, once in a while, the tramway is not running for maintenance: double-check in advance its availability!

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.
