Whilst the trip was worth while we would have planned it different if we had been deter prepared. Some reports on Tripadviser suggested there was nothing to see or do once you were up in Pigra if you caught the last morning cable car up there. I would disagree and recommend that car which gives you enough time to wander... More

5 Stars for the view! There is very little parking available, and the cable cars were packed with people, hot and crowded. There are small restaurants at the top, where you may sit and relax. The view was wonderful, and there were cool breezes on a hot day. Just try for a day when there are fewer people packed into... More

The view from the top was very beautiful and worth the 5 minute trip by the cable car. Don`t spend too long though because after 12pm they will have a break and no cable car until 2.30pm. You will end up having lunch in the only available restaurant there which was not so bad but that`s it,nothing else to do... More

This isnt a place many people go but well worth the trouble to go up on the cable. You really must remember to bring along a camera as the views over the lake as you go up and even from the top are sensational.

You get some really nice views of the lake and can open the windows so far to be able to take photographs. The cost for a return was 4.5 Euro per adult. Once at the top there is an average restaurant reasonably priced near the cable car. We took the walk to Belvedere, about 650m though a wooded area to... More

Nice couple of hours getting the cable car to Pigra and having a wander around before descending in the cable car again. Great views and a fun afternoon.

Spectacular views but not a lot else at the top. Went up, had a look, had a very good beer & pickled onions and came back down - definitely worth doing on a clear day!

Visit the place on after noon. As the cable care is running more often. It close between 11:30-2:30. I reached there at 11:15 am. But the last care is on 11:30. Then you have to wait until 2:30 to go down On the top you can enjoy the view. One Cafe on location but not very interesting.

My husband and I caught the bus from Cadenabbia to Argegno and was dropped off right outside the cable car entrance. We then took the 11:30 cable car to Pigra along with 6 other passengers and to be honest I'm rather glad there wasn't the full 12 people the car can accommodate as this was close enough. At the top... More

Really a very nice experience with an impressive view 900m from above the lake. The roundtrip ticket will cost you EUR 4.5 pp and booking is from it's office there, didn't find any place online to book but when we were there 2 days ago, we booked our tickets right before our ride at 3pm which took a couple of...
