Every 20 minutes there is a cable car leaving, its quick and easy views up and down you have to get off half way and change cars. There is a Luge ride near here also which is a bit expensive .but a lot of fun. Walking in summer and skiing in winter is available from the top. There is also... More

This Cable car is at a prestigious location and has not worked for some time. I walked a fair way, as you need a car or a day to walk up the mountain. The Cable Car would have saved time and given grandness to the area. Come on Council, get it together with the B Family. :(

A short walk from downtown Stresa, the cable car takes you to one of the high points (not quite to the top - you need to walk or take a chairlift) of the Lake Maggiore area. Fantastic views all around. Breathtaking

Had some free time on a recent Sunday so de died to take the cable car ride to the top. Euro 19 to take a ride but it was worth it. Spectacular view of the Lake District and Switzerland. You had to change halfway up so remember to save your ticket. At the top there is a chapel with two... More

Kids saw the cabin during the boat trip and wanted to go up there. We paid 50 euros for 2 adults and one kid (our sun is 3 and was free of charge) but it was definitely worth it. One way takes about 20 minutes, there is one stop at alp gardens if I remember the name correctly, were you... More

Much higher than you think when you look up the hill - just keeps going up and up. Great views from the top although you can get to the same place by car so not isolated. Two good restaurants. Get here early in peak season to avoid long queues

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...
