Long Description:
The line first opened in 1886 and was initially operated using the water counterbalance system. The line was converted to electrical operation in 1926 and was closed to traffic on December 24, 1975. After over thirty years closure, followed by a major rebuild, the line was reopened on December 16, 2006. The reconstruction was done by the consortium Doppelmayr Italia-Impresa Generale Costruzioni Garboli SpA-Mondovì. The rebuild involved the reconstruction of the two terminal stations, construction of a new passing loop, and the provision of two new panoramic cars.

The funicular operates every 10 minutes. On most days service is between 07.30 and 19.50, with service until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays, and no service until 10.20 on Sundays and public holidays. On the first Monday of each month, there is no service after 13.40.
