  • We watched the end of a mass in the lovely sactuary. It is truly on top of the mountain. We took the cable car to the top but decided to walk the 4k down. It was very intense and a bit treacherous due...  more »
  • My yearly visits to the Shrine by now stem from religious reasons. However, even for those who didn't have this cue, and was located in Rapallo or surroundings, a tour is a must. The sanctuary is a jewel and a view of the Gulf, and Portofino, is spectacular. You climb effortlessly by gondola. With a little more sacrifice on foot, with the path that starts from the cable car: this is worth it. Go to the shrine: anyway you will do well.

  • Very nice views of Genoa. Alone the cable car a visit is worth. Then the Church and then in the restaurant with panoramic view of Genoa.
