The lovely Rachel let us know, via another post, that the cable car is open again. She also sent this very useful link  which gives the opening times and fares. It’s a bit complicated to work out, but the first column labeled ORARIO INVERNALE SCOLA operates during the school term (Sept 11th – June 10th approx) starting at 0640 and the second column, ORARIO ESTIVO, are the Summer holiday times, the first one leaves at 0830. The cable cars leave Pigra and Argengo at the same time and pass each other in the middle. By the way, there’s a gap in the service at lunchtime….molto Italiano!

The single adult fare is €2.90 and the return is €3.90. There are other prices shown including for a bicycle and also for an annual season ticket. As well as being a great way for tourists to see the lake, it’s a vital connection for the local communities.

We hope you enjoy your trip!

We’re not sure if the cable car (funivia) is running at the moment. There seems to have  been a row about the funding of the renovations and we think that this might mean that it has already been closed, until work can be done.

However after trawling around the internet and wishing your Italian could cope with reading Italian newspapers better, we think that the money has now been sorted out for the work on the cable car to take place.

If you know any more about this, please let us know!
