If you're looking for a stunning view where you can take great photos, look no further. This is well worth a visit. The cable cars itself are quite well maintained but we were there on a busy day and felt as if we were being herded in like cattle. The cable cars are standing room only when you're packed in...

When we arrived the 11.30 cable car had just left. However, as other reviewers have said, the operator just phone his colleague at the top who sent the car back down and we went off straight away. It seems they do keep running rather than keep people waiting. However, they do also strictly observe the 12 - 2.30 lunch break... More

The ride up was just breathtaking. The views were great at the top of the cable car, but once on top there wasn't a lot to do. Just expect that you will have a nice ride and view up and down on the cable car and be able to cool off at the higher elevation if it's hot outside. Make... More

My boyfriend and I took a 20 minute bus from Cadenabbia to Argegno which stops right outside the entrance to the cable car, it cost €4,50 return each and took around 10 minutes to get to the top. The view from the mountains is unreal! One of the best ways to view the lake, would recommend a 15 minute walk... More

Crazy queuing when we arrived after the lunch close - poor guy on his own dealing with a bunch of girls with suitcases and ubiquitous push-through-not-British-queue-type-Germans, but they do run until everyone is at the top and not just every half hour trip. Five minutes each way. When you get to the top the views are spectacular. Nice forest walk... More

Good value. Bit hairy. Pity the electricity pylons prevent any photos of the spectacular views once you are at Belvedere at the top. Pigra is charming. Recommend following the signs that take you through the streets of the town to really see its charm.

If you want the view from the top of the mountain, this is the easiest way to get it. Be prepared for a bit of a wait at the bottom and the little cable car can be crowded. It is worth it. If you are feeling energetic, walk the Mulleteria back down.

This is an excellent service which will get you up to and down from Pigra if you don't fancy the steep walk from Argegno. It runs every half hour apart from the break at lunchtime between 12:30 and 3pm. Unfortunately the last trip down is at 6pm. This prevents you from enjoying a wonderful dinner at La Lanterne in Pigra... More

Friendly cafe, a few walks and a cooling breeze await you at the top. We took the short 15 minute walk through a shady wood to the nearest lookout point and amazing views over the lake. The cafe welcomed us all and had a wide variety of cold drinks. The cable car journey follows the contours of the slope and... More
