It's a must do. Cheap bus ride gets you to Argegno from Como. From there the signs will lead you. Closed between 12 and 2 pm. When you reach Pigra, the views will blow your mind away. The forest trail walk is also great, but we just sat by the lovely church and enjoyed the beauty and peace and nature... More

The rapid ascent provided a breathtaking view of Argegno and Lake Como. Pigra is an interesting town to explore and then it is back down for another wonderful ride.

Not to be missed! If you are visiting Lake Como, drive or get the bus/ferry to Argegno, park in the free car park by the church and walk up the steps at the side of the church, cross the road and turn right and you will see the start of the cable car. It closes at lunch time, so check... More

good views on Como and amaizing tasty water on top. tip: pass through the village to catch the nice view on Bellagio - the map near the cable station will help you to get the place.

The cable car is an attraction for those without fear of heights and claustrophobia. Going up a steep hill in a cable car of 3x1,5 meters together with 9 others was not my favorite memory of a otherwise great holiday. But I have to be honoust, the view was great and my wife and kids fuly enjoyed it. Once you... More

We had a fantastic trip taking this cable car up the mountain to Pigra. Very reasonable and it looks rather shaky at first but seemed well maintained. Very steep slopes up, but the ride is quite quick. Beautiful church at the top with amazing views. There's a cafe playing reggae music and a slightly stern owner at the top, all... More

Beautifull trip and not expensive. Park near the church in Argegno. Small walk to the station. On the mountain walk straight ahead across the roundabout. Keep left and enjoy the old town. All is easy to walk and not so far. Easy for children. Fantastic view. Drink coffee near the station before you go back. Man with long hair speaks... More

Cheap with and easy to read timetable, a free coffee machine at the bottom (not many people notice that) and Pigra is an interesting little town to walk around. Some nice walks from the village too and a pizzeria by the top station.

We enjoyed walking around the almost deserted village at the top of the cable car; perhaps weekend visitors arrive from Milan?
