our friend took us for a ride on the funicular and it was awesome. When doing the descents it's much easier going from the top down then vise versa.. Check out the beautiful stained glass windows in the arches and the view while going up.

A great way to see both sides of the city. Makes getting from the riverside to the main square a 10 minute walk.
