This cable railway is a ten minute ride to the top where the views are lovely. You get a great sense of the city's location and development from the top station. There are strenuous walks from there to visit some of the old 17th century...More

This was 5 minutes from our hotel. It was worth going up, taking a look around & coming back again. You can walk further up but we had a train to catch. It's nice that it's not all in a tunnel so you get to...More

Oh you ask, what is a funicular? It is a cable car on a mountainside operating by cable with ascending and descending cars counterbalancing each other! We really wanted to experience one; so, off we went to find the Funicolare Zecca-Righi. Built between 1895 and...More

This is my favorite means of transportation to Genova hills and forts. In 15 minutes your can completely change your environment, from city life to the woods and mountains. You don't have to be a good "hiker" to enjoy the walks through the hill tops...More

From the heart of the City to the heights on a very steep funicular, via a few short intermediate stops. If you have an AMT travel ticket, this ride is included free. Good panoramic views from the top, but not a lot else to do...More

Fun and efficient trip up to the hills on the outskirts of Genoa. Views are great, but there’s not a massive amount to see in the immediate vicinity once you arrive at the top (beyond the views of course). There is a fort which you...More

While the funicular ride itself was fun (and very cheap), when we got to the top, the view across the Genoa seascape was disappointing in that it was blotted out by trees and buildings for the most part. At the rear, the views towards the...More

We were eager to take a ride with the funicular System put in place for the first time 120 years ago. Cheap ticket, friendly staff, comfortable ride. The view up top is fantastic. This is not related to the amt, but it would be useful...More

It's definitely worth taking a funicular up to the last stop. There's a view from the deck but it's worth to walk about 5minutes (to street heading upwards) where you'll get a full panoramic view of the city and harbor.

This gem would be so easy to miss if I hadn't read about it already on TripAdvisor as the entrance is pretty well hidden in a little side street. For the price of the standard 1.50e 100 minute ticket you get to ride up the...More
