Do it if you are close. It's a nice ride over the river either a awesome view to the Dom. Price is fair. Don't do it if is more than 39 degrees. The cable cars don't have AC

Short trip across the river. Great views and very reasonable at 7 euro return. We chose to walk back through the park and then across one of the bridges.
