It costs 8€ return but the views are amazing! Quite short ride- about 10 minutes but really recommended! It’S a must when you’re in Castellamare. During summer it runs quite often.

It varies according to the time of year. At the moment, the first one is at 8.25am and the last one at 20.15. I recommend that you check the timetable online though.
