“Great experience ”

Funivie del Lago Maggiore

Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

Visited on Monday morning in Late June. The cable cars run every 20 minutes or so stopping for an hour over lunch. No queues and our car was only half full which meant plenty of space to move around and take in the views and take photographs.

We then took the chair lift up to summit although you can walk. The chair lift is very easy for those not used to them and goes much slower then it would in the ski season making it useable by people of all ages.

Thoroughly recommend and good value for money.

Found this cable car by accident, I was sitting on the balcony of our hotel on the other side of the lake and was using binoculars when I spotted what looked like cables going up the hillside so went onto the internet and found Funivie.On the Saturday morning we used the ferry from Baveno,you have to change at Inca, and arrived at Laveno and its a short walk to the cable car station. If it's good weather use the open car, it's like a metal dustbin but gives a fantastic experience on the trips up and down. Staff are very friendly and helpful and can slow the system down for anyone who requires time to get on board.
Besides the fantastic views you get from the top there is also a restaurant and a snack bar, we used the snack bar and found it good and reasonably priced.
The top is also used as a take off point for hang gliding so you may be lucky enough to enjoy watching them.
Don't know why this is not better advertised because it is well worth a visit.

Despite that the carriage is a bit scary, it gives the funivie a rustic feel. The baskets flooring is see through and you ride high above ground looking out over Lago Maggiore.

I loved this as a child, and returning to Laveno as an adult I still think it’s amazing. A must do when visiting!

Little open air, u could call them large buckets, takes two people to the top of the mountain. Great fun had a few laughs. Great scenery on the way up and at the top.

Restaurant at the summit. We did not eat there. Plenty of seats at the top.

10euro for a round trip.

15 minutes walk from the ferry. Well signposted.

Worth a visit

We went with 2 little children, aged 8 and 3 and it was a fun experience. Our older daughter and I took an open bucket and my husband and our younger one took a closed one as they are scared of heights. It's a pretty slow ascent and descent so it takes around 16 minutes one way. The bucket take 2 people max at a time. It's fun to watch around as you go up or down and when we went in the evening time it was very sunny and the lake just shimmered splendidly the whole time. It iss a treat for the eyes. The view from the top is also splendid and there is beauty all around. The last ascent is at 6.00pm (last descent at 6.30pm) and we just managed to make it. It's a different experience and yes, I did wonder once or twice about the bucket door flying open, but thankfully it didn't, so it was a nice ride!
