Don't miss the excellent view from the lighthouse at the top of the mountain. You won't be disappointed, all the way to the Swiss Alps, although make sure it's a clear day!

The funi is nice, steep and you get some really cool moments of fugitive view while climbing, but take all your pictures on the way, because once on top, there is absolutely NO VIEW !
Well I am exagerating a bit, I am sure there is a view in mid winter, when the trees have lost all theirs leaves, but in end october, forget it. You won't be able to have the famous panoramic view that the guides sell you.
Take the funi anyway, it is not that expensive and you will have something to visit and walk around, but don't go there for the view.

It's a regular public transport line, and it can be used to go and visit uphill locations as well. Enjoy!

The funicular ride from Como to Brunate was great fun - one of the highlights of our trip! This really is an amazing feat of engineering. Brunate itself is charming, with stupendous views out over the lake. We had lunch at a little trattoria just below the funicular stop and had wonderful food and local beer, and a view we just couldn't tear our eyes from.
