“visit church”

Santuario di Montallegro
Ranked #1 of 59 things to do in Rapallo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 19, 2013

You must visit this lovely church high above the hills of Rapallo. The Funivia ride to the top can be intimidating but worth it if you can stand heights.

Its an amazing view from here. Not just the sea but the mountains. It is also worthy since its not a typical foreign tourist attraction

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.

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.

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.
