Short but memorable ride to darling little town of Pigra, high above Lake Como. It was the perfect place for a quiet hike and a peaceful stroll through the town.

Nice little trip, worth the visit - the views at the top are ruined really but that is because of the electrical cables, the cable car is still worth it, even saw deer, pigs and cattle on the short trip

We took the cable car from Argegno up to the lovely village of Pigra. Over looking lake Como. Where we explored for couple of hours The scenery was stunning, then went for a lovely lunch at Le Lanterne restaurant. This was a fabulous day.

We walked from the pier about 10 mins to the cable car. After a short wait we were quickly taken to the top to what was a great view and photo opportunity. Well worth a visit.
