“Brilliant views for 1.50 euros”

Funicolare Zecca - Righi
Ranked #2 of 10 Transportation in Genoa
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 16 September 2017 via mobile

This gem would be so easy to miss if I hadn't read about it already on TripAdvisor as the entrance is pretty well hidden in a little side street.

For the price of the standard 1.50e 100 minute ticket you get to ride up the very steep slopes to Righi from where on a clear day you can enjoy fantastic views of Genoa and the surrounding hills. The train is comfortable and clean and a real experience in itself. From the top there are numerous walks of varying lengths or you can simply enjoy the view and return by train again. A must-do if in Genoa.

Riding up the inside of the hill through a tunnel in a small car then emerging and climbing through several stops to the top of Genoa is great fun. The view at the top, even on an overcast day is breathtaking. And the price of the ticket (there and back) at €1.60 is very reasonable. It's also an insight into the way many Genovese citizens live on the side of the steep mountain despite not benefiting from the wonderful view.

Fantastic view from the top. A lovely experience for the children to travel on the funicolare. Fabulous value for money - return trip in 100 mins cost for a family of 6 €9.

If you want to get above the city for a great view then take the funicular up to Righi. You can buy a 100 minute return ticket for just 1.50 Euro. If you like a bit of a hike I'd recommend that once at the top, go for a proper walk up the hill to explore further and stop at one of the local restaurants for a meal and a drink, this might mean you need to buy another ticket but I felt it was worth it.

A fun and relaxing way to see Genoa and the surrounding countryside. Buy tickets from the tobacconist shops.
