Funicolare di Chiaia is a great and convenient way to travel from one part of Napoli to another. The thing is when you are faced with hills, as is the case in Napoli your choices are limited and the funicular is a great way to...More

The funicolare is an extremely fun ride. It's a Train like ride up a very, very Steep incline. Inexpensive. A must do in Naples.

We arrived by boat at 8am and had no wait up the tram. A fun way to travel but a bit of a crush. Not sure what accommodations for wheelchairs but as the walk up would be arduous I hope there is.

Don't take a taxi to get to the Vomero, take the funicolare, travel as the Neopolitans have for ages. It's like San Francisco Cable Car meets New York City's Subway. Very functional, fun and inexpensive. Not to mention not having to deal with intense cab...More

One of the few cableway in Naples.The tickets are the same used to all the other local means of transportation.It's a not very long but very interesting trip,as long as it's made in a very steep way.

We took the cable cable to go to the Piazza Vanvitelli. It's a truly impressive piece of engineering and really different from your usual humdrum public transport. The way back down was really quite dramatic. Quite an unusual and unexpected experience!
