Le Tréport’s Funicular

Take a (free) ride up or down Le Tréport’s funicular, which joins the upper and lower parts of the town. The ride, at less than 2 minutes, cuts through a tunnel in the cliff on a 155 metre long track.

I’m sure that fans of the Scandi-noir styled French cop drama Witnesses (or Les Témoins) will recognise the funicular.

I loved that program and really hope a third season is filmed. I read earlier this year that it’s likely to happen. Fingers crossed.

    1. It’s pretty neat. I believe it’s unique to Europe in that it cuts through the cliff. I’ve been on the ones at Capri and Stanserhorn, both of which are above ground.

      1. Great post, love the views!
        I really want to visit the one in Lisbon. One day!
        Of course I forgot that I’ve been up the Paris one (at Montmartre), although that seems a bit anticlimactic after the others. 😋
