“Unfortunately still not in operation - May 2014”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

We travelled from Ljubljana to Villa Opicina to get the tram to Trieste but it was not in operation. As we were informed it is usually out of service for many months every year, so don't really count on it. The locals didn't know when it would be back to service again.

As we did a similar route by taxi in the end, the route is amazing with scenic views of Trieste and the see. So if you are not in a hurry and the tram is in operation, just take it!!

“A wonderful landscape and some trecking”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

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!

“I hope it works soon”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

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.

“Great when working”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

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.

“Closed until 2014”
Reviewed 30 September 2013 via mobile

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.
