The cable car starts operating at 8 a.m. from Malcesine and then there's a run any 30 minutes. The numbers of runs increases with the number of visitors.
The time of the last ride downhill depends on the season.
Once you get on top of Monte Baldo you could take an easy walk, enjoy the nice view or try one of the many typical dishes served in the mountain huts or in the restaurants next to the station.
