It is about a 15 minute walk from central Rapallo to the cable car. The cable car goes up the mountain quite regularly from where you can get excellent views across the harbour to Portofino. At the to you can visit the Basilica or stop for a snack or drink in the hotel.

We did this on a whim when we were visiting nearby Portofino. What a great view and then, at the top were a beautiful, ancient church and a wonderful little hotel/restaurant that was getting ready to close for the season. The staff was very nice and the food, while not great, was good. It was just such a nice experience,... More

A bit of a frightening ride if you're not great with heights like me! But excellent views and lots of fun.

During my recent painting holiday to Rapallo I took my small group of leisure painters to paint at Montallegro high above the town. To get there we took the cable car. It was a breathtaking experience and great value. Only took 8 minutes to get up to the Basilica at 660 meters. What views we had and what a great... More

Only 5 minutes from the train station, this attraction is well worth the effort to find it. The attraction opens at 9am, but we bought our ticket (€8 each) a little before 10am for that departure. We were super lucky as there were only about 8 people on the way up and 6 on the way down in the car.... More

Superb views from this cable car-ride above Rapallo. Lovely walks and church at top if you can walk well and climb steps. Not for disabled people,

Highly recommend this cable car which takes you high above the wooded mountains of Rapallo. Hidden away but follow the signs from sea front and you'll find it. Well worth the effort.

One of the best things to do in Rapallo-fantastic views and a wonderful view of the whole bay from the church which is adorned with heart shaped momentos-never seen elsewhere.

The cable car terminus is found about 5-10 minutes walk away from the rear of the railway station, but is not particularly well signposted in the centre of Rapallo. Very good value at 8 Euros pp, andata & ritorno. The car itself is quite old and only has a couple of seats meant for persons of need, and everyone else... More

A good fun trip with views back over Rapallo and harbour. Make sure you check out the views from the cafe behind the church at top. Go down the left hand side of the church , across the back of the church and follow track for 150 metres for fantastic views while you sit and have a cold drink or... More
