The funivie del Lago Maggiore was the highlight of our week! Being dragged up an almost vertical incline in a bucket might not sound like everyone’s cup of tea, and def not for anyone scared of heights, but an absolute must for anyone with just a little spirit of adventure. I felt completely safe at all times and oh, the views!! I had this urge to stop complete strangers on the street to say “You must do it!” At the top there is a choice of a smart restaurant or a snack bar, both with fantastic views. Tucked away off the beaten track in the small and very pretty resort of Laveno, only reached (from Stresa where we were staying) by 2 boats, and with very little marketing, this must be Lake Maggiore’s best-kept secret. It took us an hour and a half to get there, but the boat ride in itself was part of the excitement. We wanted to go back the next day and do it all again!

Wow - what an experience. My wife and I spent an evening on Isola dei Pescartori and noticed lights going up the mountain across Lago Maggiore.

Upon investigation, we found that the lights were this place - Funivie del Lago Maggiore. We decided to go. The trip up the mountain in the "buckets" was great - amazing views of the mountains, Lago Maggiore, and the Borromean islands.

At the top, there are numerous places for great pictures, hiking trails, and a nice restaurant with good food at reasonable prices.

My wife and I highly recommend a trip up the mountain at Funivie del Lago Maggiore.

At first I thought we only took one cable car up and down, and I thought it was kind of a ripoff. Then I realized it's TWO cable cars, and a chairlift, and you are up at the top of the world with incredible views! The cable cars were fun, a little cramped and you get the best views from only one or two sides to people were jostling for space. They also don't warn you when you're going up that when the cable goes through the rollers, there's a big dip afterwards and the car rocks back and forth like crazy! That was a little scary and I almost fell over, but no big deal. Once we got to the top, the views were unmatched - you can see everything! You can take your time at the top, there's a restaurant and tables outside to hang out and relax, and enjoy the views on the way down without so much jostling in the cars!

I highly recommend this! I am afraid of heights and wasn't really sure if it is worth it, but the moment you start seeing the town, the lake, the islands, all fears disappear. On the top there is a caffeteria where you can sit, have a coffee and enjoy the amazing view! During a bright weather one can see really a lot - the lake, the mountains, the small towns next to the lake. The only thing that I didn't like is the cable car's cabin (more like basket). Even without wind it can be shaky and when trying to take a picture it is a bit inconvenient to keep balance. But the view is totally worth it!

Returned to area after three years and this is still the most memorable experience. Up a mountain in a bucket open to the elements. Great views over lake as you rise. At the top is a restaurant and separate cafe both with super views. Stopped for couple of beers. Are trails up and down but why bother when cost is 10€ return. Great value. The ground station in the town is not obvious so worth checking on google maps or similar.

Wonderful memories and many photographies you vuoi gave after that amazing trip.
No difference in ages but all people enjoying to observe that fantastic mountains from Italy to Switzerland. The restaurant and hotel there perfect. All dishes fresh and very yammy.
Also from 14 o’clock every day about 10-12 parachute and paraplanes you could see. If you ll take a small carpet you could enjoy on the grass under sun.

€10 return trip in a scary bucket up the side of a mountain. 20 minutes of gripping the rail and sweaty palms was totally worthwhile for the amazing and unforgettable views across Lake Maggiore towards the Alps and beyond!

I saw an ad for this and I thought that I would pay a visit. Beginning with a 15min cable bucket lift to the top the views were awesome looking outside downward. Little hazy when on the top but it was a warm day. Good sandwich on top.

We visited and rode the “buckets” up to the restaurant and had a walk around the top. Lovely views and a wonderful lunch!
