The 'Funicolare di Montesanto' line leaves from the Montesanto metro station and arrives at the Morghen station, which is at the top of the hill.  From there, it is only a five minute walk to the Sant'Elmo castle and the San Martino Monastery.

This funicular runs from 7 am until 10 pm daily.

The cost of a single ticket on a Naples funicular is the same as a bus or metro ride.  A daily transit pass includes rides on the funiculars in addition to buses and metros.
