Wish I had known this before getting on the local train. The Campania Express which runs on the Circumvesuviana tracks would have been faster and more comfortable getting to Sorrento. Took the local so I could ride this aerial tramway. Disappointed!

Got off the train only to find that the cable car is still not operating. Asked at the kiosk and they said maybe reopening in June but he didn't sound convincing.

Hello, I'm honestly doubt that the cable car is currently operating! As I recall is stopped in something like September annually! It wasn't a huge amount given the spectacular experience going up!
