The fungi is approximately 5min walk from centre of Rapallo and costs €8 per person return. The views on the way are spectacular. The Church at the top is Devine and again spectacular views. There is also a lovely coffee shop.

Approx 10 minutes walk from Rapallo train station you will find the entrance to the funicular. It’s a magical ride for some of the most beautiful views you’ll see. There is a bar / restaurant at the top.
