The Funivie cable car was a blast. From the start it was my intention to ride the cable car to the summit and then walk down the hiking trail back to Laveno. I didn't expect to be in such a old school kind of cable car (bucket), but I loved the thrill of it and the chance to be out...

We have been looking at Laveno from our apartment in Stresa all week, we can see that there is a cable car going up and decide that we must do this before we leave the lake. From our apartment we catch the bus around to Intra, from the bus stop it is a short 5 minute walk to the ferry...

if visiting laveno you have to ride the funivie to the top and down again (10 euros return) at the top the restaurant/hotel has a lovely terrace. the food was good and the service also. theres a more informal bar/café on the other side of the funivie (funicular).

We stayed here for a week in October when the hotel was very quiet. We arrived late (after the cable car had closed) but Paula (who runs the place) organised for the car to run especially for us. This set the tone for the service we received the whole week. We were treated like part of the family and hugged...

We stayed for 4 nights at the hotel on top of the mountain. It is only accessible by cable car (not recommended for those who suffer from vertigo) and the ride is an absolute delight . The cost for the cable car was 10 euros, which gave us a pass valid for the four days. (We left our car in...

The cable car is actually in Laveno, which can be reached by the vehicle ferry across the lake at Intra. The cost for the cable car was 10 Euros per person which is...

We found this place by accident while researching points of interest for Lago Maggiore. We went to the Sasso del Ferro (Iron Mountain) to have a nice lunch and gaze down on the lake. While there, we discovered that they also had a hotel (very reasonable). We spent a night and got the room with a balcony facing the lake....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In Laveno Mombello, one of the loveliest and picturesque village on the Lake Maggiore , you board a coMfortable cable car that takes you near the top of Sasso del Ferro ( 1100 m.). In the solemn silence of the nature a superb panorama is under your eyes: The Alps, the Prealps, Lombarde Lakes and far away the Po's River plain. The Sasso del Ferro , cool in summer and pleasantly mild in winter , is the ideal destination for serene week-end and pleasant walks trough its evergreen woods. The trip takes 16 minutes. At the cableway station , together with a Souvenirs Shop there is an Hotel with Restaurant with a breath taking terrace and a snack Bar where you can share the thrill of the taking off of HandGliders and ParaGliders. Enjoy yourself ! ... more   less
