People Mover elevated shuttle trains offer quick (and
wheelchair-accessible) connections between three points on the edge of the
city's historic center:
The Piazzale Roma, where
locals and visitors arrive in the city by public bus,
taxi, or car.
cruise terminal, where many passenger ships arrive and depart. (Caveat: The
Marittima station is located just outside the Marittima port entrance, which
means that passengers need to walk to or from their ships.)
parking island, which has indoor and outdoor parking for thousands of cars
and is also the arrival point for most tour buses.
People Mover is a cable-operated train system that's similar to the automated
trams in many large airports.
In this article, we'll tell you how to use the People Mover, and
we'll show you captioned photos and videos so you'll know what to expect.
