“Spectacular views from this church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Got the cable car up from Rapallo for 4 euros great adventure, went into the church and received a blessing, went to a lovely resturant at the back of the Santuario di montallegro with great views of the bay had coffee and cakes.
check on the times of the cable car coming back down as they break for 2 hours at lunch so we decided to walk down, not a good idea in 28 degrees and 2 hours later.

“Fantastic views.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Cable car trip worth it.
Great views across to Portofino
The climb to the church is a bit steep for those not quite so fit.

“a lazy tuesday afternoon with a spectaular view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Do this early in your visit to Rapallo to get the birds eye view. Turn inland from castle on the beach and go under train tracks - stroll 10 mins along the river - well it is more like a trickle! You will reach the funicular - cable car. 8 euro round trip, on every half hour ( or when crowds it is more) .

It is like flying over terraced gardens to the mountain side. It is worthwhile climbing imposing steps to the church and lookout. But even better to walk behind church on inland side and along to next restaurant through cool woods. Have tea or coffee (cheap) with spectacular view

From top you can see from portfino to rapallo, so this will help you on your boat trip.

“Nice view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

We took afternoon trip by Funivia the cable car uphill to the Monastery. The Monastery itself was beautiful, but the best are views from the cable car.
