Bring your food and wine, and take the cable car to the Pigra small village at approx 700m. The view is fantastic. The cable car manager takes his lunch break between 11-14. Small bar and toilett at the top. Long steep walk of 2h back, almost 15km. Take the cable car down.

Great view in from the cable car and from above. Town is bigger than it looks and a short walk around the newer and older parts is worth it. Also there are paths leading via the forest to other smaller town. Also we walked down to argegno instead of taking the cable car and it was very pleasant. Depends if... More

Certainly worth going up for the views. We were too hot to explore the village itself, but comments from other passengers suggested that it he been worth it.

What a great way to got up high and take in the views of Lake Como and surrounding area. The cable car runs every 30 minutes and once at the top you can explore the hills which have outstanding views. We ate at the top in a lovely cafe serving many of the local dishes would certainly recommend.

Very cheap - 9 euros return for a couple. We had no idea there was a village at the top of the cable car - it can't be seen from lake level. Fantastic afternoon. Set aside a couple of hours to walk the village and enjoy the cafes - at least 3 to choose from with English speaking staf.

9 euros (may 2015) for return for two people. It takes 4 mins to climb the 881 metres to Pigra and to get a birds eye view of the lake. The cable car is closed between 12 and 2 so keep this in mind when planning to visit. The ferry from Bellagio is quite expensive so we took the central... More

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
