It costs nine euros. it is a short trip and it is not very comfortable. The plastic on the windows is old, scratched and yellowed, which makes it a poor viewing of the city and bad taking picture. The ride is good for kids and...More

I found a brochure for this attraction in the Tourist Office but couldn't find any information in English which I though was strange seeing the idea is to attract tourists from other countries to use the train. However, we could see the price was 9...More
