Once you arrive at Brunate.We took the Tram up the hill, you have many choices of hikes. We choose the Volta Tower, about a mile walk up cobble stone streets and paths. The trek up can be daunting if you are not in good walking shape. However, the view from the top is magnificent. You can see the Lake Como... More

My wife and I flew to Milan and took a train to Como for our first 4 days of a magnificent restful holiday. Using bus and ferries we spent 4 days in Como followed by two other towns on the lake. Everyday we did something but just easy all the time. We did all the tourist attractions Highly recommended. Henry... More

we went up on our first day in Como, early September morning, there wasn't a cloud in the sky but brisk, about 13 C. Spectacular scenery on the way up, but you need to spend some time at the top, give your self half a day at least. We wondered down to the left, and had a bottle of Prosseco... More

The views of Como from the furnicolare are disappointing, very disappointing. But it is relatively cheap, good coffee at Como and of course great views from the top and better views from the lighthouse. I recommend the trip.

The funicular ride from Como to Brunate is pleasant and fairly cheap. Once there, you enjoy a beautiful view over the lake and the mountains. A few restaurants up there although we did not stay long. Worth it if only for the view.

Worth the effort to take the funicular railway or drive; although the drive is not for the feint hearted. Very steep narrow and twisty road The views are amazing across the lake into Switzerland and down into the town of Como
