My idea was to ride the funicular RR down the hill and take pictures as the sun was setting, however that was not to be. The last train down is at 7:30pm which was well before the summer sunset time, so keep in mind this isn't a good option for seeing g the sunset atop the hill. Still, the descent was crazy fun to do as I was able to get a spot in the very front car and see the city and views unobstructed. Also, plan for extra time to ride the funicular - it seems to be quite a bit more popular than the cable cars. I waited about 30 minutes in line to go down, while my cable car ascension was no wait at all.
I loved the old rickety feel of the train, but all was safe and sound so no concerns at all. A well marked entrance to easily find this spot and also food and the vendors in the area.
