Firstly, having taken cable cars in other parts of the world (Switzerland, Austria etc) I thought these could have been better maintained.Perhaps they are at the end of their life and should be replaced. Anyway, the trip is worthwhile as the views and the church...More

About an eight minute ride up the funivia. The funivia is in a residential area with limited parking and about a 15 walk from the centre of town. Check the schedule before going as times seem to be somewhat erratic. Once you get to the...More

Fun ride, went for the views but you could enjoy lunch or dinner at the top. We were fortunate in that they would operate more frequently from their published schedule if there were more people waiting than the car could carry.

You must take a ride with it if you visit Rapallo. Breathtaking views of the riviera if you have a nice sunny day. Nice walk to the church at the top with some place to have a drink.

We turned up early to ensure we (4 of us) got ahead of the queues. But we need not have worried as there were only another 6 people turned up. Surprising because it's a lovely way to see beautiful views of Rapallo and beyond. It...More
