A must do for couples, especially. Walk around the forest trail. Soak in the views. Have some wine at one of the restaurants at the top. Oh, what a day. Will cherish these times at the top, with breathtaking evening views of Como town.

My son enjoyed the ride. The views are good too. And there is a pleasant village at the top with a beautiful church that is worth a visit.

Not the most memorable funicular in the world. Easy to find and a fair price, good for kids as the ride is not real long. Some of the views from the top are obscured by trees or bushes. On weekends there is also a bit of a market set up at the top which is not consistent with the quieter... More

The funicular takes you to a restaurant above the city. From its terras you have a limited view of the city. From the funicular itself the view is beautiful. Be in the back when going up and in the front when going down!

Take a stroll along the harbour front at Como - The lower station of the funicular railway tucked awa.y Euro 5.30 cost return trip. Departures every 15 minutes. A short 7 minute ride each way. Another village and a spectacular view awaits you on the summit

It is a must. It may not seem like much from the bottom, but the view from the top is truly spectacular and well worth your efforts to get up there. There is a nice place up the top for a cup of coffee or a meal.

Fantastic views of Lake Como and few bars/restaurant at the top. Only €5.30 for the return ticket. Well worth it!

If you're visiting Lake Como don't miss a trip up to Brunate. The funicular is a great way to get there. Sometimes it's crowded but try to get a place at the end of the tram so that you have a great spot to take pictures of Lake Como and Como either going up or down. Once at Brunate the... More

for €5.3 this was great value to ride to the top of the hill and see far reaching views across the city and the Lombardy plain .. absolutely worth the cost and time .. probably a good base to walk from as well

The funicular taking you to the town of Brunate from Como. The ride was smooth, and well priced €5.30 for the return trip. It runs regularly, every 30 mins allowing plenty of time to explore one of the breath taking towns. Lovely stunning views of Como and it's lake. Stand at the window of the front car of the funicular... More
