A great trip out if you are in Stresa. It was a bit cloudy and misty when we went but we still have brilliant views, well worth a ride. There is a little old cafe at the top... read more

It was taken out of use because it was declared unsafe. So far they have been unable to attract a sponsor to help with it's repair. You will however find that the signs directing you to this attraction are still very evident. Don't be fooled. If you want a great view over the lake go to Laveno and ride the... More

Don't go all the way to the station to find this is now not working. It seems that they have no funds to restore it and it a bit of a walk to get there and be disappointed

We were very disappointed, as we were looking forward to this trip, there are alpine gardens halfway up and the views from the top are said to be fantastic.

We wanted to take the cable car. The sign at the station explained that it was undergoing renovation, but that since no one knew when these would start, they cannot say when it will be operating again. Oh, well.

The cable car is closed "for maintenance". It seemed that this is ongoing and it may not re-open. Our travel rep gave us the temporary closure line, but my guidebook referred to it being closed some years before.

This needs serious upgrading. Great view but the cars are super old and scary. It's like being back in the 60s...

Very disappointed to find that the cable car has been closed since some time in 2014. It needs to be replaced but there is no indication of anything happening.
