  • We were lucky enough to get in on a clear sunny day, 10 degrees on the bottom, 3 degrees on the top, perfect conditions! We drove up to the middle station as the scenic route up there is great! Going up the 360 rotating cable car was a treat and we got to see the entire valley! Up the mountain we went, and took the left route out the cable car, going all the way to the last peak, overseeing the entire lake and valley on the other side. The experience is well recommended, also to families with small children. There's a small Alpaca farm, and a smaller playground, while the adults are drinking their hot / cold beverage :) All in all - a great experience, though you must do it when the weather fits! Otherwise its just a waste of your time / money.
  • Beautiful panorama on the mountains around Lago di Garda and a great view to the lake
  • Il posto presenta panorami mozzafiato sul Lago di Garda, nelle giornate limpide.
  • Magnificent
  • The ride with the cable car is an experience in itself. The view on the Monte Baldo is spectacular. Hiking is possible even for inexperienced users. Depending on the position, you can see almost the entire Lake Garda from above. On the other hand, even the Alps can be seen in good weather. The going and return trip costs €20 for a dog per person €5 to happen again. It is recommended to put a muzzle on the dog or it must pay a penalty. I've seen many dogs on the mountain and in the gondola but none has been muzzled or punished. Sadly, I found just the carelessly discarded trash in this magnificent landscape. Everyone has it but happy to clean and untouched, there but also everyone can take back again its bring your own box, bottle, or Vesper paper. However, it is worth on the Monte Baldo the money to go.
