We paid for the cable car to visit Santuario but it is also accessible by car. There are a couple of fine restaurants and hiking opportunity too.

If you're lucky, you'll get to the church while mass is in progress. Don't worry about not speaking the language. If you have any knowledge of Catholicism, you'll be able to follow.
