Your memorable trolley takes you past the Queen Emma pontoon bridge and the floating market, where Venezuelan merchants sell fish and vegetables from their boats. Next see Scharloo, a former residential neighborhood lined with picturesque colonial homes built in the 1800s. A highlight of your Scharloo overview is a stop at the recently renovated Bolo di Bruid, known as the "wedding cake house", the city's most photographed building.
Leaving Scharloo, enter Pietermaai Cathedral, the largest and most impressive on the island. You will also view Queen Wilhelmina Park, which serves as the setting for frequent cultural events and Waterfront Arches, an imposing fortress that was the site of the fort is one of many structures that lend a sense of history and atmosphere to the city, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Concluding your trolley experience, you may return to the pier by taxi or remain in town and enjoy the short walk back to your ship at a later time.

Curacao is a charming island. Willemstad is brightly colored, diverse, and bustling. The trolley train was the perfect way to get a glimpse of daily life and the history of this fascinating place. Sometimes its nice to move slowly. The trolley ride was relaxing and fun. Our guide showed us interesting houses, churches, and schools. We passed the street market where merchants sail from Venezuela to sell their goods. The total tour took a little over an hour. Its meant as a snapshot of just part of Willemstad. We did this tour in the morning. For a broader view of the island, we did Discover Curacao in the afternoon. I highly recommend the Willemstad Trolley Train for anyone who wants to learn about a beautiful place in a fun and relaxed setting!
