This is true Pittsburgh and the perfect way to get the lay of the land during your visit. We went up one incline then walked the mile to the other for the trip down, stopping for lunch near Shiloh Street on the way.

This is a fun & enjoyable way to get to Altuis and other restaurants. However, it is very expensive and very casually run.

History comes alive as you ride to the top of mt. Washington. Takes. Few minutes and then you alight into an old Italian neighbor full of locals. Great time.

The service you recieve at the bottom of the incline is terrible the people yell at customers.and are very rude especialy to people that dont speak english and dont understand what they need to do. maybe you should have signs at the parking lot.

At the top of the incline are several excellent restaurants. I like the smaller ones best, because they are intimate and if without a reservation, you might be able to still have a view without a window seat.
