Cable car not working! It has been out of action for 1 year we understand aparently due to cost of essential upkeep

It is broken with no obvious plan for restoration. Disappointing for many potential visitors to that part.

Not operating at present! Apparently it is undergoing maintenance but still appears in guide books. Try and get to the alpine gardens anyway even though the cable car would be more convenient.

Disappointed to find that after walking to the cable car station it was out of action. Story of my life!

We drove up to Mattarone as cable car wasn't working. It's a 40 min drive from Stresa and well worth the trip. The view from the top which is a 10 min walk is amazing - you can see various lakes. My husband has a hip problem but he made it up there with the help of a walking stick.... More

Was in Stresa in June 2015 and found this cable car has not been in service for about 1 year. Shows how out-of-date guidebooks are. I looked at several and none mentioned this. Can get to Monte Mottarone by bus but only 1 or 2 a day, and takes much longer than cable car which took only 20 minutes.

The cable car is no longer operative due to lack of finance. Only way to the top of Mottarone mountain is by car - winding scary road - but scenic as well. Alpyland roller coaster (toboggan) is at top).

Too expensive to maintain so it may never operate again. To get to the Alpino gardens take the local bus, probably more exciting.

I was unable to ride on this as it was closed down for repairs. So don't expect to be able to ride it when in Stresa.
