Walking up to the kind couple who agreed to put me up when “something in the air” (as the electrician said) had stopped the electricity from working in the flat where I had been staying, is a stiff uphill climb … unless you use the...More

The funicolare is an extremely fun ride. It's a Train like ride up a very, very Steep incline. Inexpensive. A must do in Naples.

We arrived by boat at 8am and had no wait up the tram. A fun way to travel but a bit of a crush. Not sure what accommodations for wheelchairs but as the walk up would be arduous I hope there is.
