Fantastic 20min trip in a bucket eerily quiet on the way up and fantastic views of most of the lake. This trip is one of the best around and well worth the fee, young and old will love this. This is one of the best views that you can imagine, nice ice cream at the top as well and places... More

If you are staying near Lake Maggiore then going on the Funivie is an absolute must. The view at the top (much higher than I originally thought,) is one of the best views I have ever seen,; literally took my breath away. It was a beautiful October day when we went so it was wonderful as we had gorgeous weather... More

What a fun way to see a great view. The 20 minute trip in a bucket is great! You can choose either an open bucket or a closed one, though they did look a little cosy with 2 people in. 10 euros for a return trip. At the top there is a café and a fabulous view. You can walk... More

This has become a must do event for our visitors. Even for our height sensitive friends they have all loved it and considered it well worthwhile once they are at the top. The buckets do not travel very far from the ground and it take approximately 20 minutes to get to the top. There are breath-taking views from the top... More

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... More

We went on the funivia towards the end of our holiday. I had my left arm in plaster up to my shoulder from a fall so I had to be careful.. The buckets in which you travelled were open, and a few were closed in, but it was impossible for me to get into one as there was no handle... More

Funivie is a unique place for anybody who appreciates a gigantic view on one of the most beautiful landscapes on the planet. The hotel facilities are aged, but receive regular maintenance. Be in time for the last gondola up the hill.... Better to place a call in advance before you arrive very late.

We stayed at the hotel for one night in August and had dinner at the restaurant. The 360 degree view is one of the most spectacular I have seen anywhere in the world, and dinner on the terrace was very romantic. The rooms are a little dated, but clean and very good value for money for this area. It's certainly... More

The Funivie cable car was a blast. From the start it was my intention to ride the cable car to the summit and then walk down the hiking trail back to Laveno. I didn't expect to be in such a old school kind of cable car (bucket), but I loved the thrill of it and the chance to be out... More

We have been looking at Laveno from our apartment in Stresa all week, we can see that there is a cable car going up and decide that we must do this before we leave the lake. From our apartment we catch the bus around to Intra, from the bus stop it is a short 5 minute walk to the ferry... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In Laveno Mombello, one of the loveliest and picturesque village on the Lake Maggiore , you board a coMfortable cable car that takes you near the top of Sasso del Ferro ( 1100 m.). In the solemn silence of the nature a superb panorama is under your eyes: The Alps, the Prealps, Lombarde Lakes and far away the Po's River plain. The Sasso del Ferro , cool in summer and pleasantly mild in winter , is the ideal destination for serene week-end and pleasant walks trough its evergreen woods. The trip takes 16 minutes. At the cableway station , together with a Souvenirs Shop there is an Hotel with Restaurant with a breath taking terrace and a snack Bar where you can share the thrill of the taking off of HandGliders and ParaGliders. Enjoy yourself ! ... more   less
