One of the most underwhelming activities we have ever done. You will wait in a long line to get tickets so best to buy them early and return later to skip the line. It is a good thing that the funicular only costs €5.50 because...More

The outside of the building looks like a Swiss skiing lodge. Only waited a couple of minutes after purchasing our tickets. Plenty of room in the carriages. The ascend up to Brunate seemed to take forever. Was such a long way up my ears popped...More

We try and go early to most things and this is no exception! We got there when one was leaving and we managed to get on the next one but it was full(around 10ish on a Friday). People do push and rush in and we...More

For only 5.5 Euro, you get the view of a lifetime! Definitely walked up to the ticket window expecting to pay more. The town Brunate was not as enchanting as other Italian towns but the ride is why you are there!

Great views of the lake and town of Como. I suggest going up the mountain on the earlier side to experience the shops.

By taking a round trip on this old funicular you can see great views of Como from above. It costs 5.5 eur, nice attraction for good value of money!

Interesting and a must, get there if you can before 11am. Queue becomes quite long but the whole facility is efficient. Great view from above in Brunate.

The funicular wasn’t open when I went but a replacement bus took me up to the top - the views are spectacular. Quite possibly the best views of Lake Como if you aren’t a bird.

Yes... Como Lago station is literally 450 m away. Trains are frequent and will take you to Milano Centrale in less than an hour.

Was there 2 weeks ago. My mother was on wheel chair, I had no issues getting her around. At the top, still able to push her around.
