Stand in the front car of the funicular if you can. You will be able to see great views, particularly coming back down. Quite packed on both our way up and back down and not much airflow. Fantastic views from the top. You can even see part of Switzerland. But not much atmosphere at the top, so if deciding where... More

We rode the funicular to the top of the mountain where we walked (optional) to the lighthouse which took about an hour. Breathtaking views not only at the lighthouse but also on the journey up. There are a few restaurants with majestic views of the lake and the Swiss Alps in the distance. Allow yourself at least an hour to... More

Very easy to walk to from almost anywhere in Como, the funiculare takes you to Brunate which has an amazing view of the town. Some very good little lunch spots with excellent food offer the same view at the top.

We've taken the Funicolore not on a sunny day and the views haven't been disappointing. Como at the shore of its beautiful lake and the big cathedral right in the middle of the city. W We did the stroll up to the light house ... a relaxing short adventure ...

An easy must do when you are in Como. €5.50 for the return journey with a few things to do and see when you reach the top, but if you only have a spare hour take the ride to the top simply for the views.

Well worth the visit! With the entrance hidden near the lake frontage, the funicular railway covers the last 100m of the lower run through a tunnel. Great views on the way up, and even better when you get to the top. Great walks along the top of the ridge and good little coffee shop (with rugs/blankets against the chill wind!)

We took the funicular up to Brunate for the fantastic views. It is well worth doing if you're in the area. We walked back down the path instead - that was a bit overgrown in places and certainly only for those who are used to doing a fair bit of walking!

Definitely a must if you are visiting or staying in in town. Worth the views over the lake and the city and not expensive
