Fabulous views and if you go right to the top you can many of the lakes all around. Beware the cable car closes for lunch!

Just happened upon this great little place. A bit scary, old and rundown looking for Americans, but still so beautiful and fun!

We took in this attraction as part of a deal with Riviera Travel in October 2014. The fee per adult was 38 Euros and I thought it well worth the money. The only negative about this attraction was that the cable cars are somewhat tired and in need of modernising. Also, you stand up for the entire journey, which can... More

We saw some incredible views, but on the way down we were too slow and we missed the cable car We had to wait for the next which was one hour and spent it in a mediocre café bar

We set out early in the morning and took the two cars and chairlift to the top. The air was misty, almost ethereal on the way up but we still enjoyed some lovely views and managed a few nice pictures. We arrived around the same time as the peleton for a local cycling race and that added a bit to... More

The views of lake maggiore in Stresa are gorgeous no matter where you look but the ride to the top of the mountain overlooking many lakes and towns in this area should not be missed! There were great views in all directions for miles.

For us this was a bit overrated. The cable cars are in dire need of upgrading. We did however enjoy our 38 Euro ride up and down the mountain and then the 2 seat chair-lift to the top. Quite exhilarating when you have fear of heights! Do visit Albergo Eden for refreshments on your way up or down, very reasonably... More

If you get the opportunity this is well worth a trip. Two levels by cable car then 2 person chair lift or walk to the top (not that far). On first stop you can go on a short walk to see the Alpine Gardens (a bit small and there is a fee). The views, especially if you can get a... More

We took an early morning ride. Unfortunately it was a rainy start to the day and our view across the lake from the cable car as it slowly ascended was through a rain speckled window. Nevertheless, it was still stunning, the islands floating on a pewter lake. The terrain is alpine. You glide over the canopy of firs and spruces,... More

Easy to find as it is both prominent and positioned right next to the Carciano ferry station. If you go up the mountain, note these things: it goes up further than it looks. Over the first peak that you see as you look up the hill is another, that takes you much higher; The carriages rock a lot at certain... More
