Tram di Opicina
A scenic and romantic way to get up to Trieste's Carso is by going in the tram. This old rail system was opened in 1902 and has become part of local folklore, there are even local, traditional songs about it. It leaves from the city center's Piazza Oberdan and travels the five kilometers (three miles) up the Scorcola to the town of Opicina . Tram di Opicina is far more than just a means of transport; it is a large tourist attraction and represents an important part of the city's recent history as well as being part of the heart and soul of the city. The route it follows is extraordinary; passengers sit on the wooden benches and feel as if they are on an old fashioned merry-go-round. When looking out the windows they have a fantastic view of Trieste, the bay and Castello di Miramare .
