It's a must do. Cheap bus ride gets you to Argegno from Como. From there the signs will lead you. Closed between 12 and 2 pm. When you reach Pigra, the views will blow your mind away. The forest trail walk is also great, but...More

The rapid ascent provided a breathtaking view of Argegno and Lake Como. Pigra is an interesting town to explore and then it is back down for another wonderful ride.

Not to be missed! If you are visiting Lake Como, drive or get the bus/ferry to Argegno, park in the free car park by the church and walk up the steps at the side of the church, cross the road and turn right and you...More

good views on Como and amaizing tasty water on top. tip: pass through the village to catch the nice view on Bellagio - the map near the cable station will help you to get the place.

The cable car is an attraction for those without fear of heights and claustrophobia. Going up a steep hill in a cable car of 3x1,5 meters together with 9 others was not my favorite memory of a otherwise great holiday. But I have to be...More

We had a fantastic trip taking this cable car up the mountain to Pigra. Very reasonable and it looks rather shaky at first but seemed well maintained. Very steep slopes up, but the ride is quite quick. Beautiful church at the top with amazing views....More

Beautifull trip and not expensive. Park near the church in Argegno. Small walk to the station. On the mountain walk straight ahead across the roundabout. Keep left and enjoy the old town. All is easy to walk and not so far. Easy for children. Fantastic...More

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

I don't think you can book tickets in advance but I don't think there is any need to anyway. If it is busy they will run every 15 minutes instead of every 30. When we went last year, the cost was €4.50 for an adult return... More
