The cable car is a nice ride up the mountain. It costs 4.50 return and the view from the cable car station is lovely. The cable car leaves every 30 mins They also advertise the view from belvedere which is approx 10 minute walk away (through a wood). The view would be lovely except that it is ruined by power...

The ride on the cable car is an absolute thrill. When you arrive at the top the view is incredible. The cars run every 1/2 hour (on the hour and 1/2 hour) parking is the hardest part, only 4 spaces at the building.

This part of the trip is not part of our original plan, but we are very glad we made a trip to Pigra via the cable car. The view of the lake from Pigra is beautiful despite the cloudy day when we was there and the town itself has some distinct character that we wish we have the whole day... More

I love riding cable cars and this is one of them. The ride alone gives me the thrill. We were staying in Bellagio and therefore we had to buy the day ticket for the ferry up to zone 4 to cover our trip to Argegno. In August 2014, the cost per head was €16.30 per person for a day. It... More

A memorable cable car ride which slowly but surely provide the best view of Lake Como both on the way up or ride down. One can take an exercise to walk instead.

This was being fixed when we first arrived in Argegno. But it was working by end of our second week. Near beginning of our trip we drove up to Pigra (which was an adventure in itself) but when this was working had to go on it. The times can limited during the day, unless it's seasonal, so only had limited... More

One of europe's steepest, offering fab views on a clear day. Worth a trip. Once up you can have a walk about a very quiet village and then come back down, unless you want to walk, which can be done in an hour.

All the tripadvisor reviews were very helpful regarding Pigra cable car but the one important fact that i did not see mentioned is that it is closed between 11.30 and 14.00 so plan accordingly.

I used my trip up to Pigra as an exercise plan but.... it lead to a two hour plus walk back down the mountain. I missed the signs as there is a path down that should be much, much faster. Please get directions in English before you try this stunt... The Cable Car up and down is fun as the... More
