So wished to do this to get up to the base station of Alpyland. However, the tortuous 11-mile drive half way up Monto Mottarone is only a very poor substitute, particularly in a good car.

Currently out of action for its 40 year service! Web site says it will reopen at the end of July 2106 but the locals say don't hold your breath as it could take years.

We got the bus up from Stresa to Giardino Alpina (which is wonderful) and afterwards walked the short distance along to see how work on the interim stop was doing. Machines and materials were being taken up and down and we saw about 10 workers there. Maybe open this winter?

This attraction is closed for repairs and has been for a while now. We knew in advance of our trip as I contacted the local Tourist Information office, but they were unable to advise of an opening date. I think it has been closed for about a year now so don't get your hopes up. And don't worry, Stresa is... More

This cable car at Carciano was closed when we visited in June 2016, not sure when it is due to reopen

Been closed for 18 months, unlikely to be open next season either due to extensive refurbishment. Disappointed as we were not informed and intended using this to get to summit and walk back down to Stresa.

Because it was and I think still is CLOSED for restoration/renovation - I was looking very much forward to this little trip up the mountain, but did not do my research - Please DO if this is high on your list of things to do at Streaa, otherwise you may be disappointed

Take the cable car to the highest mountain in the area. Great views and a fantastic restaurant at the top called Casa del Neve.

Do not believe any suggestion to use the cable car since it has been closed for a long time and will probably never have the necessary investment to resume operation.
