The price is bit expensive (17 eur), but if you go there on a sunny day you get a breathtaking view of Lake Maggiore and it’s villages. There are two cable cars (you switch mid way) and at the top there is a chairlift, which...More

Not the least expensive of trips but what cable car is. Much better now it's updated, take time to get out at halfway and walk to alpine garden, allow about 11/2 hours , and do the round walk at the top.

Great ride in stages to the top of Mottarone. In good weather there is a magnificent view over Lake Maggiore and the town of Stresa. Some options to hike down stages of the ride if you are keen.

We travelled with two kids (2 and 5 years old). Both of them enjoyed the cable car and beautiful views from the mountain. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Beautiful views of Lake Maggiore after riding the cable car. It was a rainy(drizzling) day but still gorgeous view. Only one of us went to the top via the chair lift and was even more beautiful. At the end of the cable car, just one...More

Ok it's more than 300m but it only takes about 10 minutes to walk, probably more like half a K. It's certainly worth it though, great views.
