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

Park by the harbour and walk over the bridge past the church. Short walk along the road to the bottom of the cable car. Great views at the top for only €4 return but there is not much at the top. Bit of a tacky bar there but at least somewhere to get a drink while waiting the 30mins until... More

We just went for a quick look up and did not venture into the Pigra hamlet itself as we were afraid to miss the last cable car down but it was worth it all the same. Fantastic view on the lake!

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.
