Stunning place, great trip up on the cable car, a little pricey but worth the trip. The toboggan run is a giggle.

What a beautiful church. It is well kept. The inside is just too beautiful. You can light a candle and say a prayer. It’s so peaceful. It was busy.

Well worth a visit but being painted and repairs being done at the moment so shrouded in netting and scaffolding. You can still access the church though.

It is really a very short walk. You will make it without problem. But there are some stairs in the end. To get back you maybe bought a return ticket so you go back to the cable station, or you can take the bus. If you like... More

I believe that the church opens early and each time I have been up to Monte it has been open, even if there are services on. The bell towers and upper floor are open via a door which does not intrude should a service be on... More
