Wonderful views and a great way to travel to the botanic garden. Wear walking shoes and be prepared for the air to be cooler up on the mountain.

The cable car ride was exciting but too many people crammed in to be able to have a full view. Better was the Chair lift although stopping twice can be unnerving. The summit needs to have attention to nettles and weeds around the seating area.

The ride was well worth it...better yet, hiking at the top. Arrive early and consider hiking down; either from half way up or from the top.

We took a trip on the cable car last week, I was a little anxious to begin with, but it's actually OK. There is a long span between a couple of the pylons which is very impressive. It's worth breaking the journey to visit the...More

Mottarone affords some of the best views of the lake. Very fun and I would highly recommend. We enjoyed it so much, we HIKED it two days later. I wouldn't recommend that unless you are fit and prepared for a strenuous hike! August 2017

In fairness we only went to the first stop and did not take the chair lift up to the very top but from where we were there wasn't that much to see - no a lot of ooohing and aahhing. At our level there didn't...More

Go early (before 10) to avoid the crowds and check the weather beforehand and pick a sunny day. You will not be disappointed. The cable car itself is very smooth and quick, although you are tightly packed in. Near the top of the mountain you...More

It is a nice thing to reach mottarone but do not expect the most spectacular views on your way. You will be happy to see the views at the top.

Regular cable car to the almost top of the mountain - if you want to go to the actual top then you have to get a chairlift. Service is frequent though note they will squeeze in as many people as possible!

I think if you get there around 1000 you should be ok but they seemed to give priority to cyclists. Personally I wouldn't wait for the last car but I'm pretty sure they wouldn't leave anybody up there. Weather forecast... More
