Views are great even though I don't like heights. It's got seats but you have to be quick as they go fast! Especially when kids are around! It's not expensive and you just get a round trip ticket. It's a beautful view at the top and you can spend all day there. The funicolare runs all day and well into... More

I was here two days ago after a HUGE snowstorm. The scenery was something out of a movie. Everything was white, the trees, the lake, the houses, the roads. I hiked up to the Faro and the view was even better from there. It's perfect in winter & then don't let bad weather stop you from making this trip!

Easily accessible and runs like clockwork. This experience is beautiful and gives you stunning views of the town, lake and across to the Swiss Alps

This is a must do trip if you are in Como. The funicular leaves about every 15 minutes. It takes about 7-8 minutes to get to the top but once you arrive you get a fantastic view of the city of Como! Make sure you walk to panorama point. We are here in winter so prepare to have plenty of... More

The funicolare from Como to Brunate is a truly lovely experience. On time, no delay and very reasonably priced. The views of Lake Como and city are spectacular as you are ascending or descending.

Be sure to choose a clear day to be able to enjoy the stunning view, then hop on board and take the short ride up to Brunate for lunch overlooking the lake. Walk south along the main street to the bar at the end of the road on the right and find a seat on their back patio hanging out... More

Unbelievably beautiful views. If I had it to do over again, I'd ride up mid to late morning in either the first or last car with the big windows. Then I'd walk out the side and down the steps of the station to see the views and take tons of pictures. I'd wander up the street to the church (pretty),... More

Used the funiculare twoce with family visits. Great view and must go. If you like to walk or tracking go up to the moutain and forest and is alot to undercover, and on the way back look for the polenteria.

We were staying in Milan and caught the train to Como. A short walk from the Como Lago train station around the lake took us to the funicular railway to Brunate, which takes approximately eight minutes to reach the top affording wonderful views over Como town, the lake and surrounding villages.
