In several parts of the city, upper and lower areas are connected by tram cars with tilted bodies, The inclined plane railways are always interesting. We have used them in Paris, Lisbon, and various places in Switzerland. We call a day making our way around, using the inclined railways " Fun with Funiculars !".
