We were hoping to catch the tram. We thought it was operating based on a recent review. It hasn’t operated for 3 years according to the locals.

Each our visit in Trieste/Trst is connected with a wish – to go with tram from Opicina / Opčine down to the city. But they are repairing and repairing without real energy and responsibility to the users and all who like this legendary tram. I...More

Wanted to try it out. It has been „temporarily“ taken out of service. We used the bus to get to Opicina. Pity.

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.

Such a shame that these beautiful teams/funicular are still not operational. The journey from Trieste to Villa opicina is worth doing by bus, for the views at the top by the obelisk, and for the walks in the Napoleonic woods, but would be much more...More

If you know the song it once crashed into a house. More recently the one going up crashed into the one coming down. I am assured that it will all be fixed for the Barcolana in October. I am not so sure.
