We were lucky enough to pick a beautiful clear day to go on the cable car. It is well worth a visit but expect a bit of a queue, I found that they tended to pack you in like sardines and if you are only just over 5 ft like me you don't get to see much on the journey... More

I would take a picnic as the restaurant was poor and extremely expensive. only really a good day out if you like walking, ie go up in cablecar and walk down.

The botanical gardens are not large or inspiring and we didn't think they were worth the entrance fee. An expensive trip for the views.

It's an odd trip up the side of the mountain with a chairlift at the top - nothing exceptional, but some decent views. Don't go on a cloudy day

Alpine Garden half way was not worth the visit. Very few flowers. Ten minute walk from the cable car.

We took the funivia from Stresa to Motarone. It takes 20 minutes and costs 20 Euro per person. When we reached Motarone, I was disappointed that there was no view deck. To enjoy the view, one walks up to the church, Madonna dela Nieve, or around the vicinity of the station. There are no paved paths. The views are lovely... More

Good views but the weather closes in really quickly, so you can end up in cloud very quickly. The windows on the cable car needed cleaning-so useless for taking pictures
