  • I am so glad that we decided to walk down from the chairlift and stumbled upon this gem. I loved the view from the edge of the cliff. The paths are well marked and easy to follow.

  • Walked down to this church after taking the chairlift up to Monte Solaro based on reviews. It was firmly locked shut. It was a long steep windy and rocky path in the middle of a hot mid-July day. A huge regret not taking the chairlift down as the chairlift up was magnificent. Don't make my mistake!
  • Interesting and quiet spot away from the tourists. Fantastic views and a great hike! Well worth it!
