  • The area is really nice and offers various types of tours that you can take to even get to the terminus of the cable car and enjoy the scenery.

  • Super great views from the Baldo of course blows it by train, but it is even better to go with a sports car on Riva. Very nice track, but nothing for bad nerves

  • Apart from the splendid panorama that I don't see the effort, aside from the beautiful glimpses every where that I don't live by fatigue. Apart from the wonderful wildlife that won't be rushing from fatigue etc ... I mean a radiance that should live by cable car and not walking. Absolutely recommended.

  • Go in spring time and have no waiting time for the cable car! Very nice view over the lake and nice stormy clouds. Watch out for the bear!
  • Monte Baldo is stunning. Anyone travelling or planning to go to Garda or verona, you must stop here. Breathtaking views, gorgeous walks and generous gelato. Family of five climbed up and took cable car back down. Very doable, bring water.
  • When visiting the southern Lake Garda area in the spring, summer, or fall you have to make your way up to Malcesine and take the cable car to the top of Monte Baldo. The view from the top is absolutely breathtaking. It's fun to watch people paraglide from the top of the mountain. Highly recommend! We went in the beginning of November.
  • Breathtaking views. Worth going up and doing some wandering on the top. Even with kids -they'll handle it. Make sure to buy the tickets in advance. It'll save you up to 2 hours of waiting. However there will still be a 1 hour queue to get to the cable car. Little heads up: do not order mushrooms in the restaurant at the top station - mine had worms.
  • From hot Malcesine up to Autumn and mountains! It was trully an incredible experience, totally worth trying and its money. Be sure to have plenty of free time, as walking trails are long!
