Very useful transport up to the beautiful San Vigilio. Great eating places with views at top of funicular. Also walk on another 400 m and there is a nice outdoor cafe with fabulous views. Prompt and efficient service.

I’d recommend this funicular.....but not the next one which takes you further up and higher up into the hills.

A nice way to travel. Did queue for a short while but it was well worth it. Views are good. Regular times until late and reasonably priced so well worth it.

Go up and enjoy views and mist of a winter day....church nearby and the about a mile hike up to village and the Volta Lighthouse. Steep climb but worth the views. And beware of snow and ice as you get up towards it.
