If you are in Stresa you must ride the cable car to Mt. Mottarone. The walk from town is worth the trip with lovely views of the lake and surrounding hills.

We went to the top today with our friends. Staff helped us get my wive's walker onto the chairlift. Beautiful views from the cable cars and from the top of the mountain which is about 5000 feet above sea level. Would rate this as a top three attraction in Stresa. Recommend. Happy trails...

When visiting Stresa take the time to catch a cable car to the top of Mottarone... the views are well worth the trip.

We took the cable car up on a cloudy day. The walk down was a great hike with beautiful views of the lakes as the clouds lifted. The little coffee/tea place at the top of the hill has lovely apple strudel , hand made.

A good ride up to the summit approach via the two cable cars but did not see any views there because of thick cloud. We stopped off on the descent at the Alpine Gardens and the view from there looking over Stresa and Maggiore was good. Whilst the cars have been upgraded and repainted the same cannot be said of...

A must do in Stresa! Fabulous views of the seven lakes from the summit. Be sure to go right to the top as definitely worth the chairlift and two cable cars to experience the fantastic views of the Alps.

Fantastic views from the cable car. Worthwhile trip in good weather. Be warned that if there is cloud at the top you won't see anything from there and it will be cold. The views on the way up are still good though. The chair lift to the top is included in your ticket. That wasn't made clear. Experience only spoiled... More
