What a great way to spend an Easter morning. Take the cable car p, and enjoy this incredible part of the Rapallo history. Be sure to check out the many memorial photos and paintings on the walls of the ships and crew lost at sea.

The cable car ride up to the church area is spectacular! The view of the Rapallo harbor and the Ligurian sea was lovely, as was the church. There is a really pretty path to the restaurant, where we enjoyed more great views as we had a glass of wine.

It is well worth the time to ride the funuvia up the mountain for a spectacular view of the bay. Stay for a snack and a drink and visit to the church. Very peaceful, not crowded.

The Sanctuary of Our Lady of Montallegro is a magnificent building with every surface inside covered with paintings. Situated more than 600 metres above Rapallo, it is well worth the scenic funicular trip to see it.

Worth the time to go....an interesting story about the icon and the cathedral. Pick a bright loudness day if possible. Pellegrino's Restaurant behind is an experience, but very expensive for what you get.

This is a must see. The cable car ride affords you of a beautiful view of the Liguria coast. Once you reach the top the views are spectacular. We went up late in the afternoon and had the sanctuary to ourselves. Take the time to visit. You won't be disappointed.

I advise to visit to Basillica Montallegro.it take approximately two-three hours. Fantastic views of Liguria cost!

Loved the peacefulness of the Santuario and the walk near it. The view from the top was beautiful. Visited Rapallo a few years ago and was not aware of this glorious place. Well worth the visit.
