    I am holidaying in riva del Garda with my husband and 15month old son. We would love to do the cable cars and am looking for information on this.
    Do Ye pick up from hotel? Also I’ve read about queues for cars, how long app do the queues be?

      Hi Niamh, you will need to ask your hotel to arrange transport to the cable car, or take the ferry to Malcesine from whichever town you re staying at.
      To avoid long queues you should arrive early for the first cars……during the high season at peak times you can expect to queue for longer than an hour.
      I hope this helps

    Hi, We are attending a wedding in Malcesine in April 2018and want to take the cable car. Is it open in April as one translation suggests it might be shut as it is only open 10 out of 12 months?

      Hi Paul,

      I’m sure it will be open, where did you find the translation saying it will be closed?
