We came across this attraction by accident whilst searching on Google. Not quite sure why it's not more popular. The actual cable car scared me slightly going up as I'm not great with heights, but we saw a black bear as we climbed in the...More

Relatively inexpensive as cable cars go, but a big thrill. Nice enclosed cabins easy on off. Great views and trails at top. Can be crowded try to go early.

A quick ride up the mountain from Argegno to Pigra is worth it for the spectacular views and for exploring the mountain top.
