If you get a weekend 72 hour ticket for 7euros at the airport you can use it for the funicular. It’s a vital service to get up the hill to the old town and to get down as we found after having to walk down...More

It is a short, but very good ride. From down up to the Upper town, most probably the most efficient way to get. It is actually at night the only option to get from the old town to the Lower town. We loved to use...More

Smooth ride and efficient. If healthy and the que is long it’s less than a 15 min walk on your own. The cars were clean and appear very safe from crime.

Parked underground then rose to the walled city in the pretty & efficient funicular. It operates continuously, so when we were done seeing the town we just hopped back on for a smooth ride down.
