For me the perk is that you can see lake como from a high view point. The train actually doesn’t take you to the top. Because of the pandemic the shuttle service taking people to the lighthouse is stopped too. We didn’t wear the correct shoes for the climbing so we didn’t went up to the lighthouse. But there actually is a good panorama that has a pretty amazing view and the walk to there is pretty flat. Follow the road sign to Fonte Pissarottino but there was one point that the road sign was missing.

It runs about every 10 minutes, now with Covid restrictions first you have to get a ticket from the machine inside on the left (one for each person) to give you a number indicating when can you buy your ticket (5-7€ head, not sure) and enter the inside of the station. On the top there are bars and restaurants with amazing view. Just a word of warning, the Volta lighthouse is marked as a 15-20 minute walk, which is pretty accurate apart from the fact the is on the steepest uphill path we have seen in a while. The lighthouse is amazing and you have 360 view, but I'd suggest to walk up there in hiking booths. A few restaurants around the top, popular with locals, it's worth booking as we were shooed away, no free place inside.

Definitely worth a visit. I am afraid of heights but going up in the train is shaded by trees so wasn’t frightening at all, I had my eyes opened all the way, we were sat in the middle of the train but was great no need to feel afraid and once at the top such amazing view of the lake. It was 5 euros per person so great value. We sat and had a lovely lasagne at the top and what a view totally amazing, Bar Trattora Pizzeria Griglieria was the cheapest place we had eaten in Italy and we thought it would be the most expensive seeing the magnificent views it had. The wine was also amazing 8 euros for a carafe and half of lovely wine. Don’t leave Lake Como without a visit.

Once you reach the top point of the tram, the view is very pretty and amazing to see the lake from above. Would recommend. However, the ticket system for the tram is confusing as the machine is only in Italian and you are allocated a slot later in the day to come back for the tram, although this isn’t explained. We arrived at the ticket machine at 2.30ish but couldn’t get onto the tram until approx 4.30pm.
