Napoli is situated on two levels. Unless you enjoy a long steep climb to upper part of the city, the best way up is using the convenient funiculars or the metro.

Funicolare di Chiaia is super convenient, it gets you from Vomero on the hill to the center of Naples in no time. The tickets cost 1.10, and can be bought at any of the stops or tabacchi shops. The cablecars are clean and well maintained....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.

Don't take a taxi to get to the Vomero, take the funicolare, travel as the Neopolitans have for ages. It's like San Francisco Cable Car meets New York City's Subway. Very functional, fun and inexpensive. Not to mention not having to deal with intense cab...More
