It looks like a nice ride, but we were disappointed to find out it was no longer working. Apparently it has been in disrepair for some time. Wish we knew it before investing time to visit it.

Not many towns in Italy (and around the world) have a piece of their (transportation) history so well preserved and accessible to the public. If you are a fan of this type of attraction, you should definitely visit.
