This is a most impressive place that we discovered by chance, even if it's very popular to the local people. The church is located on top of a hill with a great view and inside you find a huge collection (over 12.000!) of tokens and small paintings, from people to thank the Madonna of Montenero for having provided help during difficult times.

Even if the religious part is not your thing, it's still worth a visit for the great view and the short trip by cableway.

Take the number 2 bus from anywhere in Livorno to Mantenaro - it is the last stop on the line. You can then use your bus ticket to get onto the funicular railway which takes you up to the top of a hill. From here you can see out over the whole of Livorno - a spectacular sight. Also at the top of the hill is the most beautiful Sanctuary dedicated to Our Lady of Montenaro. There is a church, memorial room, candle room and visitors facilities. There is a lovely square which has nice cafe's and souvenir stalls. Santuario di Montenero is well worth a visit.

Visited the hilltop location having caught the service bus number 2 from Livorno which terminates at the funicular railway. Catch the railway to reach the mountain top visit and spend some time wondering around the Church and look at the stunning views of the bay of Livorno from the terrace.

We didn't know what we were going to see and went by the funicular railway and expected only to get a magnificent view... but we found peace and tranquility as we walked the grounds. We didn't eat up there but there were plenty of options.
The railway cost E1.40 but you only have 75 minutes to go up and back.

Got here via the city tour bus that dropped us off with free tickets to use the funicular railway to reach the church. Amazing views and a little cooler up there as well. The church looks nothing special from outside but is stunning within . Take a walk around to inside of the building , there is a passage that circumvents the church and stop to take in the pictures. All of them depict the death of someone in a simplistic drawing or painting with the image of Mary in the corner. There is another room that shows more modern photos and pictures with equally morbid stories to tell . Fascinating but also a little saddening. But don't let me put you off , you can bypass all of these pictures and just take in the beauty of the church and enjoy the peace and tranquillity within.

i think this is one of the most beautiful and suggestive sanctuary in Italy, but i am sure it is the best in Tuscany. it is located on a hill situated about six kilometers from Leghorn and the wiew is spectacular.you ca get there or by car or by the small and very carateristic funicular that i recommend you. the church is dated from the eigteenth century and the legend said that the Virgin Mary appeared to a shepherd and told him ton build the churh. there is a rich collection of " ex votos " housed around the chrurch, because the Madonna of Montenero miratulated so many people!!!

Stopped here before getting the car train Livorno. It's a great little place with amazing views over Livorno, the sea & mountains. Choices of a couple of local Italian restaurants. The one we tried, Il Contino was fantastic. Great food and very good value for money. We sat on the sun terrace looking out over the view. A wonderful respite before the chaos of boarding the train.

and quiet mid-week. Apparently it gets very crowded at weekends.

We took the bus and the cable car and it's a fairly short trip from the city centre. The buses appeared to be co-ordinated with the cable car timings so the journey was simple.

The Sanctuary and dedications are interesting but it is worth a visit even for the views alone.
