This was really good fun. Scared when I first saw the buckets (never seen one like this), but the ride was really smooth and great gliding up and down the side of the mountain. Spectacular views of Lake Maggiore. Get the ferry or bus to Intra, then the regular car ferry from there to Laveno. You can walk further up the mountain if you wish, or just visit the cafe/restaurant and enjoy the views. Only went here from recommendation of other English tourists. Not widely advertised in Stresa. Looks great at night all lit up.
