The railway is incredibly impressive. It was originally built in the 1890s. Costs €5.50 return for an adult. Ride to the top is fairly quick, as others have said try get to the back of the carriage to get the best views on the way up. Once at the top the views are amazing and there's plenty of short walks... More

Great trip up the funicular to Brunate. You will simply love the fountain, the gorgeous Sant' Andrea church in Brunate. The views are magnificent

We did this on our last day in Como and it was great with excellent views... If you try to get the last car the views are better. The walk to the lighthouse is somewhat strenuous if it is warm but worth it.. Try to go early in the morning to avoid the smog/mist that builds up around the lake..... More

I had forgotten about this funicular - but managed to persuade my very hesitant wife that this would be spectacular. And it was. Make sure you snag the standing positions by the bottom end window - for the best views. Very smooth ride - with incredible views from the top.

Funicular departure each 15 minutes - cost is around 7 euros round trip - From Rail station is 10/15 minutos walking - Try to be stand-up in front of big window at bottom of funicular (first wagon), because you can have nice views and great pictures from that position - Excellent views even with cloudy or rainy days

This will take you from Como to Brunate, on top of a hill. Get off and walk to the "Road" a walkway, turn right and walk down the hill and as soon as you pass the Trattoria dei Bracconieri on your right, turn right and down the hill to the "panoramico". This is an overlook over Como and Lake Como
