Rapallo Montallegro Cableway

Inaugurated on 29th August 1934, the cableway is the only facility of its kind in the whole of Liguria and one of the few in Italy that is not intended to transport skiers.

With a capacity of 144 people/hour, it makes it possible to arrive at the Sanctuary of Montallegro in just 7 minutes, after having overcome a difference in altitude of about 600 metres, and is an additional tourist attraction for groups of pilgrims visiting the Sanctuary that commemorates the apparition of the Virgin Mary.

The ascent by cable car allows one to admire from above the intense blue of the Tigullio Gulf and a panorama of incomparable beauty, an enchanting prelude to the oasis of peace in which one finds oneself upon arrival at the cable car station. Near the sanctuary there are numerous paths and a Via Crucis that winds along the ridge among the holm oaks, an ideal walk to enjoy peace, silence and fresh, clean air even in summer.

The Rapallo Montallegro cable car operates daily (except in adverse weather conditions) with the following timetable, which may vary depending on events and seasonality.
