What a great experience - travelling vertically up Mt Sasso di Ferro in a tiny bucket of a cable car! All 1062 metres of it - so around the height of Snowdon. Take the funicular from the town of Laveno - it is about €9 for an adult and well worth it. The cars are either covered or open and... More

From the town it looks almost a vertical bucket lift 3100ft up the side of a mountain. In reality it's not that steep but perhaps not for those with a fear of heights. A lovely, peaceful ride up with stunning views, well worth €10 for the return fare. Can't comment on the catering at the top as a storm was... More

I cannot quite explain the thoughts going though my head as we were ushered into a "bucket" attached to a wire ! As my life flashed before me and I held on for dear life my thoughts and prayers were for a soft landing if the bucket fell to peices or the wire broke. After this initial shock I opened... More

Very fun but scary experience riding ten cable car. The view is sensational. At the top there are paths to walk and a restaurant. A great activity.

Getting to this restaurant is via cable car....which is actually a box. Worth the ride. The food was great and the wine flowed. This made the ride down much more fun. A must if in Laveno-Monbello.

Ride up in the Bycket lift. Very cool. But don't look down. Had a great meal at this restaurant. Lasagne and Spaghetti. Food adequate but the vires and panorama are spectacular. Highly (excuse the pun) recommended. Not a place to miss if you ban get to Laveno. Highlight of my honeymoon so far. Bonjourno

Fantastic food, superb service and astounding view topped off with the great ride up in the bucket lift. The food is traditional Italian fayre which is great after too many pizzas, if you want something more snacky there is a bar next door. The view is absolutely astounding, one of the best restaurants we've eaten at in terms of atmosphere.... More

We rode up this beautiful mountain side in little bucket styled chair lift. The ride was fabulous and so was the view from the restaurant at the top. Food was OK and we enjoyed a slow cooked pork shank with some side dishes and a glass of wine for our lunch, all good. Service was a bit hit and miss... More
