Nice views of Genua both from the train itself as from the panoramic platform at the highest station. The train itself is free and runs several times an hour from +/- 7am until 24:00.

Fantastic accommodation at la casa accanto il duomo, Dorina was so welcoming and made a great start to our short break. Genoa has more to offer than I ever imagined and we will return soon to carry out our exploring. The city is so clean and the transport infrastructure very impressive, really found it easy to get around,just full of so much culture and history. Just loved every moment

The little stat6ion is tucked away at the mouth of a big road tunnel in the middle of Genoa...If you're not looking for it specifically, you'd miss it! Upon entry we noticed the ticket machne was devoid of life/lights, until we then spotted the large sticker over the front whcih said the Funiculare was not free!

This is a "working day" service for commuters, as well as giving you access to the mountains as a tourist/walker. It is spectacular...I have never been on a funicular railway where the track curves around whilst going up! I didn't time the journey, but it also seemed to go on for 10 minutes or so, climbing at a nearly constant gradient.

The top has built in "Observation Platforms" on the roof of the station, so a quick view of the scenery is a must. Unfortunately, the highest one seemed to be inaccessible, but we knew we were climbng higher so would get a better view anyway!

One dissappointment - and nothing to do with the fenicular - was that the cafe closed EARLY! We came back from our walk in the mountains to find the cafe was closed...before 5pm...height of the season...they could have made even more money if they'd stayed open later!

Recommended! (the funiculare, not the cafe!)

In some cities, you will find funicular railways that now exist just for the sake of tourists. This one is daily transport for locals living up the steep slopes of the city. The fare is usually cheap, but when we visited it it was free. The ride itself is interesting enough, but the views from the top are the key attraction.

Easy to use funicolare (ticket machine in the entrance), the service runs fairly regularly throughout the day, we got off at the last stop, the views from there are good and walked down. Sadly theres very little to see during the ride as much of it is covered or in a tunnel.

My initial intention was to take the Ascensore Montegalletto up to Castillo d’Albertis, but unfortunately the Ascensore was closed for several days while I was in town. With a recommendation from the gentleman at the front desk of the hotel adjacent to the Ascensore, I walked 10 minutes down Via Balbi to catch the Funicolare Zecca-Righi (located adjacent to Palazzo della Meridiana).

I thoroughly enjoyed the ride all the way to the top - probably one of the highest spots in Genoa. The views of the sea, city and mountains were amazing. I could even see snow capped mountains off in the distance! I did a couple of short (downhill) walks between stations to get a feel for these leafy hillside residential neighborhoods. Absolutely lovely.

I purchased my ticket at the news stand adjacent to the Zecca station - 1.50 euros for 100 minutes. Remember to validate your ticket prior to boarding.

We have been to Genoa many times, this was our first trip on the Funicular, the cost was 1.50 euro each, very reasonable. You purchase your ticket & validate it before getting on the Funicular, which runs every 15 to 20 minutes, at the top the views across Genoa are fantastic, definitely recommend.

Very good service that runs on time. The views are exceptional once you reach the top. There is also a very good walking route which takes in several forts
