Mondovì Funicular (Funicolare)

Mondovì Funicular and Arches

The town of Mondovì is situated on two levels, Breo (the lower level) and Piazza (the upper level). The two are naturally connected by roads, but you can also take the funicular (funicolare in Italian) as well. The funicular was closed for over thirty years and reopened in 2006 after a rebuild. More facts. It just takes a few minutes to get from one part of the town to the other. Once in the Piazza, you will want to make your way to the Giardino del Belvedere to take in the panorama and walk around the Torre dei Bressano.
