Description and timetables

The electrical traction line, by way of two cable carriages, connects the city to the Carso Plateau, 348 mts above sea level. After a short ride from the terminus in the central piazza Oberdan, from Piazza Scorcola to Vetta Scorcola the tramway becomes a truly unique cable ride: carriages are hitched up on two wagon-shields at both ends of a pulling cable running mid-rail. The slope’s inclination reaches a maximum 26% before going down to 8% after the carriages are out of the shield and back on regular track towards the town of Opicina. Along the ride, passengers are treated to a number of beautiful panoramic views of the gulf below, and many are the pathways and hiking trails that can be accessed from the stops along the line.
