Actually if I had to rate the cable car it would be next to zero...very dirty and run down and stopped working (which according to the bar man in Pigra this seems to be a frequent occurence) This left us stranded in the small village in the rain and took us over 1 1/2hours to get back to our car...

The cable car is great way to get amazing views. A bit scary if you are afraid of heights but worth it to get to the top. Pigra is a lovely town. Very peaceful and there's a little walk you can take to get once at the top to take you to a view point. Would be beautiful view but... More

The 8 mile walk back down to Colonno is well worth it. It took us 2.5hrs and we passed through some beautiful hamlets (Corniga) and countryside. There are clear signs to Corniga and then the trail has blue & orange painted marks to follow. Not to be done if you have weak knees as its steep in places. Great views... More

The cable car ride is excellent and the views from the top are terrific. Pigra is a beautiful quiet town and i highly recommend the trip. The staff in the cable car stations were polite. But there is one thing all travellers should be warned about and should definitely avoid. This is the cafe at the top just as you... More

Views of the lake and quaint village. It's a bit steep but there is a viewpoint through the forest which is well worth a visit.

Well it's scary if you are a complete cable car novice like me! But it only takes about 4 minutes to reach the top ( or bottom) so it's a very short time to be scared/ thrilled. The view from the top is quite incredible, almost 360 degrees around the lake and mountains. Beautiful and awe inspiring. I would suggest... More

Although I do not have a head for heights I didn’t find the cable car scary at all. Maybe it was because although the ascent was steep, it remained quite close to the ground. Anyway the ride is only a few minutes long. When you get to the top, the views that are presented to you are simply superb. It... More
