Opicina Tramway - Review
The iconic Opicina Tramway links Piazza Oberdan, on the northern edge of the city center, with the village of Villa Opicina in the hills above. The Opicina tram takes you up from the city to the surrounding beautiful natural environment of the Carso plateau which lies at 348 m above sea level. The tram leaves from Opicina and arrives at the terminus that is located in the center of town at Piazza Oberdan, and the cable railway section begins just a few hundred meters away. Tramway no. 2 departures are every 20 minutes from early morning to early evening. The line was first run in the year 1902. Interestingly, on the steepest section of the line, between Piazza Scorcola and Vetta Scorcola, the trams are pushed uphill and braked downhill by a pair of cable tractors. This special means of transport is a memorable experience during their stay in Trieste.
