A stop off on the tourist bus trip, you get free entrance if you’re on the bus trip! Worth a visit, you’ll enjoy it.

A trip back into the past
Aug 2016 • Family
OK I am a little Bias, as my wife family come from Montenero, but this place is magical, her uncle used to drive the Funicolare when it was manual but now it is all automated, it is still fun to do and a great way to get to the Sanitorio.

Experience of the past
May 2016 • Couples
I warmly recommend this experience not only for adults....take your children trying a means of transportation of the past....It only takes some minutes to get to the Santuario of Montenero. Its ticket is not expensive and this little trip gives you good views. Try it!

funicular Montenero
Nov 2015 • Couples
A great experience. Not expensive and it was a good outing and ride to the top. The ride was incorporated in the ticket for the hop on hop off bus. A few small stalls at the mountain.
There was only a small cafe which was open when we were there during the day. Great views to the coast.

an unusual way of moving
Aug 2015 • Family
an unusual way of moving. It is an ancient little gauge railway built about a century ago to transport people from and to the Montenero sanctuary. A very short travel, bur an unusual and fun one, expecially for kids

Lovely views

Visited Montenero on the tourist bus during the afternoon. Great views across Tuscant. There was only a cafe open at the time of our visit, but would imagine there would be restaurants open in the evening. You can get the local bus from Livorno to the area.

A Must-do in Livorno!
Feb 2015 • Friends
This cable car was opened in 1908 and is the easiest way to get to Sanctuary di Montenero. There are 2 cars going up and down the hill with an interval of 20 minutes. And if you missed a car, it's definitely worth waiting for the other one, because the trip which lasts about 5 minutes is a fantastic experience! A regular public transport ticket is valid here too (or Livorno Card, for tourists).
