It’s a very steep ride on the cable car but it is worth it for the views from the top. There isn’t much up at the top but the ride and views are worth it.

Must do in Argegno with a panaramic view of the city below. The city on top is called pigra which is a small village.

We really enjoyed this. Not the easiest parking situation and not much on top of the cable car but it’s still worth the trip. Park outside the town and walk down or take a shuttle. The views are absolutely breathtaking.

The views from this funicular are much better than Como's Brunate funicular. It is positioned on the lake to see both north and south. Loved it! Easy to get to too. There is a bus stop specifically for the funivia just after the bus stop...More

Hi, I think the cable car operates all year round as it is used by people to get to work/school etc.
