You get on this land train at Piazza Maggiore and it takes you to the Basilica di San Luca at the top of the hill. It is about an hour round trip and my 2 year old Grandson loved every minute of it. If you want to walk I suggest you walk down not up the hill!

If you get it in Winter time it is a waste of money as you cannot see almost anything through these overused plastic covers. But the worst thing is the mess on the time schedule. If you hop off at the San Luca Basilica be prepared to wait for more than 1:30 hour for the next train to pick you up in contrast to what staff tells you that it will be there every 30 minutes. We used it for an hour trip and we ended up losing our whole morning waiting on the San Luca hill. Terrible time management.

unless you are an olympian,young,very fit or grazy dont take this train as its not for you as this for me is the only way up to the top and it was a very relaxing way to do it arriving with still lots of energy remaining to explore
