One rail, sometimes two rails :)

It is worth to used it, It's an easy and interesting way to reach the top of Como (Brunate). The view is nice and the place has a good atmosphere.

It was unique experience taking the funicular up to Brunate. Engineering marvel consider this was built in 1892, if I remember correctly. View from teh top was just breatk-taking. Enjoyed a calm, solemn and tranquil sunset with my wife. Experience of a life-time...

We had overnighted close to Como and drove in for a walk around. Some decent paid parking near the stadium helped us out and is a good starting point for a visit to Como if you are just taking a stroll. As we got to the shoreline we noticed the Funicolare on the other side of the lake but didn't... More

Very fast and efficient, take to brunate in just ten minutes giving a fantastic view on the city of Como and his lake. Price right for the service offered.

It was an easy walk from our hotel (Borgo) to Brunate Funicular. There’s a whole little town on top! We looked for birds and enjoyed the view-somewhat.. it was an overcast day. Church bells rang all the time! Brunate funicular. Many hikes available at top. The walk to the fountain was not good. The fountain itself was dry and falling... More

The Funicolare was a nice experience. If you can't get a seat at either end it isn't really anything special. It was 11 euros for myself, wife, and two year old daughter to go up. We all ended up with seats and the views were good but not spectacular. It was though however a quick convience up the hill. The... More

The funicular from Como to Brunate is a very steep ride. The ride takes a couple of minutes and it is worth doing it only on a clear day. Our tour included the ride up to Brunate. Since it was in January and visibility was zero, and since there’s absolutely nothing to do in Brunate other than see some pretty... More

This has been one of the most exceeding-expectations experiences (say that three times fast?) that I have encountered traveling. Thinking it is just a train, a means to get you up the mountain to Brunate, it was actually more of an adventure in itself. It's really a helluva lot steeper than I thought it would be and the views are... More

Walk to the villas and don't forget to have a look at the ruined of the Hotel Milan. Ride to the top is a bit boring, the funicular is to go to Brunate. For me the funicular itself is not an attraction at all.

The funicular is in the NE of Como city centre right next to the lake. It runs every 15 or 40 mins depending and takes only 7 minutes to the top. The length is 1084 m and the rise 496m the first part through a tunnel the explosive views of the surrounding vista and lake como. Originally built to service... More
